basic training in the DC area
This training is offered regularly in a small group format over a three-month period by EMDR of Greater Washington, a joint initiative of Deany Laliotis and Dan Merlis. This training program is for mental health clinicians licensed for independent practice with experience in treating traumatized clients. Read more about the program by visiting the EMDR of Greater Washington website.
All therapists must attend all training days and the scheduled phone consultation in order to earn a certificate of completion for this training. Because this training includes an experiential component, therapists must be prepared to work on personal issues in the training practice sessions and bring at least two clients to case consultations who could benefit from EMDR therapy during the course of this training.

It is also for the clinician who has been using EMDR therapy more intermittently or needs a jump start to take them to the next level of practice. These advanced workshops will familiarize participants with the broad spectrum of clinical applications for use with a wide range of clients and clinical situations. Special attention is given to case formulation and treatment planning for more complex cases.
advanced training in attachment
These two workshops are for clinicians who have completed the Basic Training in EMDR therapy, have been using it with their clients for a period time and are seeking to deepen their clinical skills. The focus of these workshops is to help the clinician work with attachment related issues in order to address relationship problems in the client’s current life. The relational dimension between therapist and client as a vehicle for change is also explored. Additionally, navigating the moment to moment demands of processing will be studied in depth. These courses are offered in a variety of venues and locations throughout the US and abroad.
