Divided into two segments of approximately 5 hours following each part of the training, consultation is essential to practical skill building as an EMDR therapist. Completion of ten-hours of consultation with an EMDRIA-Approved Consultant in either an individual or group format is required before a Certificate of Training in EMDR Therapy can be awarded.
