Upon completion of this course you will have all the tools necessary for full utilization of EMDR with your clients. You will now need to receive 10 hours of consultation from Dr. Parnell's faculty consultants and then complete Part 3 in order to complete basic EMDR training.
The reason you can only take this class if you are a licensed professional is because it is a requirement of the EMDR International Association that approves EMDR training. EMDR is a very profound and complex therapy that builds on the skills and experience of psychotherapists.
