EMDR Training has three separate training components; 2-three day training classes plus 10 hours of consultation (held usually in 2 hours groups making a total of 5 groups). These core trainings, EMDR Part I and Part II  train mental health clinicians in the standardized protocol for EMDR treatment and will meet all EMDR International Association’s (EMDRIA) requirements for EMDR training.

EMDR therapy is a comprehensive psychotherapy that accelerates the treatment of a wide range of pathologies and self-esteem issues related to disturbing events and present life conditions. This interactional, standardized approach has been empirically tested in over 20 randomized controlled studies with trauma patients and hundreds of published case reports evaluating a considerable range of presenting complaints, including depression, anxiety, phobias, excessive grief, somatic conditions and addictions. EMDR therapy is guided by the Adaptive Information Processing Theory which addresses the unprocessed memories that appear to set the basis for a wide range of dysfunction. A number of neurophysiological studies have documented the rapid post treatment EMDR therapy effects.


Charlene B. Spears, MSW, LCSW, BCD, an EMDRIA approved consultant, has been selected by Carol Miles MSW, LCSW LLC-Three Rivers Training Center to provide the thorough information necessary for relevant client selection & the effective use of EMDR Therapy.
