EMDR is a set of evidence-based, powerful treatment tools for trauma and PTSD, as well as other mental health conditions. While EMDR skills have been popular for many years, training in these skills can be difficult to find, and is often cost-prohibitive. This affordable 2-day course introduces attendees to the original 8-phase model of EMDR and teaches participants how to conduct each of the eight phases.
NOTE: Our EMDR courses are not affiliated with any organization other than Mind Works Professional Education, Inc., DBA Online CE Credits and does not qualify towards EMDR “certification” with any certification entity. EMDR “certification” is provided by various entities across the US and abroad, but is not required for the competent and safe practice of EMDR skills. However, in-depth training and consultation in this modality is recommended, as it would be for any other modality (CBT, DBT, etc.).
