The Institute for Creative Mindfulness is a training and certification organization authorized by the EMDR International Association (EMDRIA) to deliver basic training in the trauma therapy Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, or EMDR. The Institute for Creative Mindfulness is represented by EMDR trainers in Ohio, Northern and Southern California, and Minnesota.

Its founder, author, and master EMDR clinician Dr. Jamie Marich, designed a trauma-informed curriculum that meets EMDRIA-approved standards for basic training in EMDR Therapy. The curriculum is used by faculty in the Institute.

Teresa Allen M.S. M.F.T. provides EMDR Basic Training to licensed and pre-licensed psychotherapists. The training is based on an EMDRIA-approved curriculum designed by Dr. Jamie Marich at The Institute for Creative Mindfulness. Teresa Allen joined the Institute as faculty in 2017.

Completing the basic training approved by the EMDR International Association is a three-tiered process. After you have completed Parts I and II as well as the 10 hours required consultation, you will receive a Certificate of Basic Training in EMDR Therapy.

You will be able to practice EMDR Therapy with certain clients after completion of Part I. Successful completion of EMDR Basic Training allows you to practice EMDR Therapy within your clinical scope of practice. The designation “Certified EMDR Therapist” requires additional training and supervision and generally comes a few years after completing basic training.

The three components of the basic training—Part 1, Part 2, and Consultation—are described below.
