Trainer: Jean Hawks, Ph.D.

Jean is currently working in private practice near Jackson, Mississippi and specializes in the treatment of anxiety disorders, PTSD, and complex PTSD, including dissociation disorders. Over the past ten years, Jean has been active in increasing training available in Mississippi. She has been the EMDRIA Regional Coordinator for fifteen years and has served on the EMDRIA Standards and Training committee for eight years. In 2014, she joined Roy Kiessling at EMDR Consulting.

Prior to moving to Mississippi to obtain her doctoral degree, Jean founded an outpatient alcohol and substance abuse program in Western New York where she was the clinical director for ten years. She has additional clinical experience in a diverse range of settings, including being the clinical director for a large community mental health services agency, working at two inpatient state mental health hospitals in New York, and providing services at the Veterans Administration Hospital in New Orleans Louisiana.

Jean’s foremost goal at this point in her career is sharing with others earlier in their career what she has learned during the last twenty years of using EMDR. Incorporating EMDR in her clinical work has been the most effective and rewarding work she could have ever imagined doing. By providing training and consultation to others learning EMDR, she believes she will impact the most people possible.

EMDR Consulting is an EMDRIA Approved training provider, and therefore, this training is EMDRIA Approved.

10 hours of consultation is required as part of the EMDRIA approved basic training. EMDR Consulting has included the cost of these 10 hours of consultation as part of your basic training registration fee.

Not all training organizations clearly disclose whether the cost of the required 10 hours of consultation is part of their basic training registration fee. The 10 hours of consultation may add anywhere from $250-$1000 to your basic training cost! EMDR Consulting suggests you compare before you commit. Learn more about what we offer that exceeds ‘the basics’ by checking our ‘Dare-to-Compare table.’

EMDR Consulting’s consultation fee is calculated at $25 per hour, one of the lowest in the EMDR training industry. Therefore, $250 (i.e., 10 hours @ $25/hour) of your registration fee is earmarked for your consultation. With each consultation session you use, $25 is deducted from your $250 consultation escrow account.

Scheduling your consultation:

While it is up to you to utilize the hours of consultation to your best advantage, we suggest scheduling some of your hours between Part 1 and Part 2 of our basic training. We typically do not offer consultation during the actual training; your days are long enough!

The question that is often asked: “What if I don’t have clients, can I still have consultation and complete my basic training?”

While having experience using EMDR with clients is ideal, some participants may be in situations where that is not possible. Consultation is still valuable and would still apply toward completing the basic training course.

Face-to-face local consultation:

EMDR Consulting does its best to have coaches available in your local area so you can have the opportunity for face-to-face consultation. Local coaches often have sign-up sheets available so you can schedule your consultation before you leave the training.

Conference-call consultation:

If you are unable to make the local coach’s face-to-face consultation sessions, group telephone consultation is also available. Roy offers group conference-call consultation on Monday and Wednesday, 11am, 12 noon, and 1pm (Eastern Standard Time). Contact Roy to reserve your spot on these calls, indicating the dates and times you’d like to participate. Your date and time will be confirmed along with a toll-free number to call. No more than four participants will be scheduled for any time slot.

Consultation Cancellation Policy:

EMDR Consulting’s coaches have agreed to set aside time from their clinical practice to provide your consultation, often for less than their rate for a clinical session. In respect for their commitment to help you integrate EMDR into your clinical practice, it is EMDR Consulting’s policy to charge your account $25 for no shows or late cancellations. To make up a missed consultation session, you will need to make arrangements to pay for that session out-of-pocket.

Completing your consultation:

Completing your consultation is an individual process; however, please note that you will not receive your Certification of Basic Training Completion until you have completed both parts of the training and the 10 hours of consultation. We strongly suggest you schedule your consultation on a weekly basis.

Once you have completed an EMDR Training, you are considered an EMDR trained clinician. EMDRIA Certification in EMDR requires additional levels of continuing education and consultation in EMDR and is a separate process. To become certified, one must:
