All workshops run 9.00 - 5.00. Numbers are limited.

NOTE: These are the 2 day Part Two trainings for 2016. They are for people who have done our 2 day traditional Part One training. We will continue to offer the traditional 2 day Part Two for as long as we continue to offer the traditional 2 day Part One training.
There is a New Format EMDR training in which Part One is 3 days, and Part Two is 1 day. If you have done the New Format 3 day Part One you may attend the 2 day Part Two training, but there is a New Format Part Two which is one day.

Many recent papers have been added to the EMDR Part One page. Before attending the Part Two Workshop you should be familiar with all of this material. Graham Taylor began using EMDR shortly after the 1989 publications appeared, and has now treated over 2000 clients with EMDR. He trained with Dr Shapiro, and has helped the EMDR Institute train clinicians in EMDR throughout Australia since 1992. His recent workshops offered throughout Australia and Asia include Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Working With Difficult Clients (Personality Disorders).
