Dr. Alpern, an EMDRIA-approved EMDR consultant, facilitates consultation groups to support clinicians who wish to deepen their skills and learn how to integrate EMDR into their clinical practice. Her consultation style is warm and collaborative. Her focus in consultation is to help therapists build their confidence and develop a mature understanding of the practice of EMDR in an intersectional context.
Consultation groups are 75 minutes long and meet biweekly (on Zoom) on a semester schedule. Each group is limited to 4 participants to support a hands-on, collaborative practice of EMDR in a collegial space. The structure of the consultation group involves case consultation, practice, trouble-shooting stuck points through role-play, and case presentations. Participants are expected to arrive at each consultation group with questions and case material (process notes are encouraged).
Dr. Alpern is available for individual consultation as well. A consultation appointment can be scheduled here. You can also create your own EMDR consultation group here.
