I am organizing an online training with Graham Taylor for New Zealanders who want to become trained in EMDR. There are limited trainings in NZ, and long waiting lists. In our current environment, doing an online training offers a lot of flexibility.
I have had a long discussion with Graham about the content of the training and I am really impressed with what is covered and included in the training package. It is far more comprehensive and well set out than the NZ training that I did. I have asked to volunteer on the course so that I can learn a few more things that we weren’t taught and, in NZ, that I would have to pay a lot extra to learn.
We are putting a training together for New Zealanders because; I want my providers to be EMDR trained, because I want it to be more available, and because he is going to offer NZ friendly times. He is in Perth with a 5-hour difference, so this is great for us even though he has to get up at 5am.
Here is Graham’s training website
Basically, you have to have a level 8 qualification.
I am in discussion with Graham that if you are a Level 7 counsellor, but you have a lot of experience and some trauma experience and training, that you can also do it.
You are eligible for membership to https://emdraa.org/ (Australian Assoc) and also EMDRNZ, at the end of the training. The Australian website has excellent, free, EMDR resources.
