We believe that AF-EMDR is an art, not a technique used with everyone the same way. Attunement to the needs of each person and collaboratively co-creating with the client how to meet their needs is a hallmark of our approach to EMDR.
We also bring the use of imagination and a multi-dimensional approach that recognizes the whole person: body, mind, and spirit.
In our comprehensive training, you will learn how to use AF-EMDR in clinical practice. Our training includes lectures, small group practice, and demonstrations in a supportive environment. Because this course provides extensive time for practice, you will learn AF-EMDR from the inside out, experiencing firsthand the power of this transformative therapy.
Through lecture, hands-on practice, and demonstrations, participants will learn how to:
This training is designed for those who have completed Parnell Institute Attachment-Focused EMDR Basic Training Parts 1 and 2 or an equivalent EMDRIA-approved course. To enroll in Part 3, participants must have also completed ten hours of consultation with a Parnell Institute consultant. Part 3 is the final required part of the Parnell Institute three-part Attachment-Focused EMDR Basic Training series. All three parts must be completed within two years.
This advanced training allows trainees to more deeply integrate information taught in AF-EMDR parts 1 and 2, which will increase their understanding and practical application of concepts, protocols, and procedures. Instruction focuses on case conceptualization, target development, methods for releasing blocked processing using interweaves, and ways to increase client safety and stabilization throughout all phases of treatment. Participants will learn to work with clients with complex developmental trauma, grief and loss, and recent traumas. Trainees will have the opportunity to watch demonstrations and practice AF-EMDR in small, supervised groups.
Through lecture, hands-on practice, and demonstrations, participants will learn to:
Participants seeking an advanced clinical workshop and clinical refresher may also take the course after completing an EMDRIA-approved Basic Training in EMDR. For these participants trained elsewhere, participants must read A Therapist’s Guide to EMDR (Parnell, 2007) and Attachment-Focused EMDR (Parnell, 2013) as well as purchase and watch a video from the Parnell Institute library demonstrating Attachment-Focused EMDR by Dr. Parnell. You will be required to submit documentation of completing these requirements before attending.
Those who have already completed the full Parnell A-F EMDR Training Sequence or those who have completed their training at another EMDRIA-Approved training institute are welcome to enroll to renew, refresh, and update your skills.
