Group Consultation Contract

Group Consultation Information

This agreement outlines the expectations regarding group consultation toward EMDRIA Certification in EMDR. Consultation groups for clinicians seeking EMDRIA Certification are structured as follows:

  • According to EMDRIA requirements, the maximum group size for EMDRIA Certification consultation is 8 consultees. I prefer to run a smaller group and the maximum number of participants I allow in the group at any one time is 4 consultees. I have chosen to limit the group size to 4 consultees so that everyone in the group has an opportunity to present case material during each meeting.
  • Consultees must attend 10 sessions and present current/recent case material on all 8 Phases in order to obtain documentation for 10 hours of group consultation toward EMDRIA Certification.
  • Consultees are expected to come prepared to present case material, complete with notes on that case. Cases will be presented using the EMDR case presentation form (I will provide this to you as I want those who participate in the group to all use the same form). Not all group participants are able to present full cases in every group meeting. My goal is that each participant will discuss some aspect of their clinical work in each meeting. You may schedule a case presentation in advance of the group meeting to help ensure the opportunity to present a full case.
  • Do not include any information that will identify the case you are presenting.
  • The group will meet for 60 minutes and meetings may be held in person or at my office (115 E. Montgomery St., Gaffney, SC 29340).
