**This comprehensive advanced clinical training program confers an EMDRPT-II® post-nominal certification credential through Mind Works Professional Education, Inc. **

Our EMDR programs and associated credentials are exclusively affiliated with and available through Mind Works Professional Education, Inc. and Online CE Credits. EMDR certification is provided by various entities across the US and abroad, but continuing education certification is not regulated nor owned by any one particular education provider, association, or broker. Individual state regulatory authorities solely determine scope, competency, and legal right to practice, as is true for any other therapy modality (CBT, DBT, etc.). To determine the quality and legitimacy of your educational investment, we encourage you to look at the experience and education-level of your trainer, cost of the program, ongoing requirements if there are any, quality level of the learning platform, and established reputation of the education provider.

Why Choose Us?

Why Choose Our “Certificate Program” in EMDR?

EMDR is a leading, evidence-based therapy that can effectively treat PTSD (and other trauma sequelae) in many clients! Thus, mastering EMDR therapy skills is critical for psychotherapists specializing in the treatment of trauma and PTSD. However, easily accessible training in EMDR therapy is often difficult to find, and most existing programs are prohibitively expensive. And, traditional certification in EMDR can require many months to complete, and frequent renewal is required to maintain certification. Unfortunately, these barriers dissuade many clinicians from learning essential trauma treatment skills that could bolster their practice and help their clients in an effective, efficient manner.

This comprehensive certificate program provides you with the key strategies and techniques you need to learn to begin integrating EMDR skills into your clinical practice. And, you can do it in about 30 hours, which is consistent with the amount of time most clinicians require to learn other evidence-based, trauma-focused therapies such as Prolonged Exposure, CBT, and Cognitive Processing Therapy. Much like many of the trainings you’ll find on these other modalities, this certificate program does not require that you pay money over and over just to keep your certificate. We believe that when you’ve gained EMDR skills, you don’t lose them after one year, or five years. Just as you don’t have to earn your degree over and over, or learn CBT over and over in order to practice it, EMDR therapy skills and competence are improved over time, not lost, so long as you continue to practice EMDR skills. If you find that you’re getting a little dusty, or feeling a little tentative, we welcome you to attend our group consultations in trauma treatment, retake one or more of your on-demand EMDR courses at no additional cost, or register for additional courses. Individual consultation sessions with Dr. Sweeton are also available if you’d like some dyad practice or more individualized help.

When you earn your Certificate in Advanced EMDR Therapy Skills, it becomes a credibility marker that can help you communicate to potential clients that you’re ready and excited to help them using EMDR! And because the certificate doesn’t expire, you don’t have to worry about anyone telling you to stop listing it on your website, directory listings, etc.

We’re eager to help you start your EMDR therapy skills learning adventure! If you have questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to us at
