Described as an “indispensable modality of treatment” by Bessel van der Kolk, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) offers your clients a way to safely process traumatic experiences.

EMDR has evolved. Originally designed as a single incident PTSD intervention, EMDR principles and protocols have undergone 3 generations of change to become a sophisticated and versatile form of interpersonal psychotherapy that can be applied across the lifespan of your clients.

This 5-day intensive Basic EMDR training falls into the category of “next-generation EMDR training”. Moving away from the earlier focus on research to the interpersonal aspects of how to implement EMDR in clinical settings, this training offers support and consultation throughout the 40-hour in-class portion as well as after the training so that you can integrate EMDR seamlessly into your practice.

Mentored and trained by EMDR training developer Roy Kiessling, Esta Porter is a senior EMDR trainer who has worked alongside Roy for many years.


“Esta is very knowledgeable, not just about the many applications of the AIP model, but also about other psychotherapeutic approaches and how they can be integrated very well into EMDR therapy, while still maintaining the clear integrity of EMDR therapeutic procedures. She has an intrinsic warmth and an engaging personal style…I’m sure that participants in an EMDR training will very much enjoy and benefit from their educational experience, not just from the information they will acquire through lecture and practicum, but also from being able to directly observe Esta as a very positive role model of a skilled EMDR therapist.”

“Esta is an EMDR Master. Her depth and breadth of knowledge are second to none, and she excels at passing that wisdom on to clinicians straightforwardly and refreshingly.”

“I have nothing but positive things to say about Esta! She is knowledgeable, a great teacher, warm, and compassionate. She is patient, person-centered, and I have learned a tremendous amount from her…I value her professionalism and expertise, and I know anyone receiving training from her would benefit greatly.”

Esta’s approach to EMDR cultivates attunement, awareness of attachment patterns, and clinical judgment. This EMDRIA-approved five-day intensive will provide the essentials for implementing EMDR, including an overview on how to customize treatments for children, recent events, couples, grief, pain, phobias, addictions, and dissociation.

You will undergo a multimedia learning experience designed to optimize skill acquisition. Through lecture, videos, and practice opportunities, you will first listen, then observe, and then implement new concepts and skills.

This training updates the original procedures developed by Francine Shapiro in 1995 by expanding treatment planning, preparation, and processing interventions. Supplemented with over 43 videos, downloadable training materials, and free access to a community-wide listserv, it also provides support before, during, and after the course so that you will be confident every step of the way as you implement EMDR in your clinical practice.


• Along with the 40-hour lecture/practicum portion of the training provided during your week with Esta, you will also receive 10 hours of consultation after the training with approved consultants via small-group phone/online video conferencing to help you integrate fine-tune your understanding and skills.

• Advanced instructional materials upon registration, including a PDF of the manual and links to videos to help prepare you for the workshop.
