Course author, Susie Morgan, LMFT strongly recommends that consultees enroll in The Readiness Course for EMDR Clinicians in conjunction to consultation. She has found that it can significantly accelerate professional growth during the consultation process. She has also received feedback confirming its benefit from EMDR therapists with a wide range of experience levels – ranging from the newly trained to Consultant level.
The course was purposely designed to address the areas Susie - in over a dozen years as an EMDRIA-Approved Consultant - consistently found her consultees to be struggling in providing safe and effective EMDR therapy. So few clients present with simple, single-incident PTSD, thus making it essential to understand the modifications necessary in working with clients who have histories of complex, developmental trauma.
The course is intended for EMDR therapists to be able to use as a model or practicum for learning a strategically-sequenced series of preparation and history-gathering steps to help insure a client with non-dissociative Complex PTSD is ready to respond well when beginning trauma memory reprocessing.
