**This is a special 5-day, 25-CE interactive and didactic certification program resulting in a certified EMDRPT-I® credential through Mind Works Professional Education, Inc. **

This program provides continuing education, not higher education (i.e. it is not meant to replace a graduate degree and the rigorous educational requirements of initial licensure). The length of this program, objectives, and requirements for certification have been designed accordingly.

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 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.

IMPORTANT: This exclusive, live certification program takes place during a split 5-day period (5 hours each day) over 1/30-2/1 and 3/5-3/6 in 2024.



    To receive your EMDRPT-I® live cohort certification credential, you MUST register and pay for at least 2 live one-hour consultations with your trainer Megan Salar, to take place between Feb 1 and March 5. You may register from our Live Consultations page here.


In this 5 day core EMDR training, you will learn everything you need to know to begin using EMDR effectively with your clients. This course will cover the fundamental practical concepts of EMDR including: the methodology of the EMDR model, the Adaptive Information Processing System, the “3 Prong Approach”, original 8 phase model, resourcing techniques, desensitization, reprocessing, safety and stabilization, and more. This live, interactive, webinar-based program will require participants to engage in practical application through break out rooms and hands-on practice during the training, along with lecture, Q&A, live demonstrations, and consultation. Scroll down on this page to see a full program outline.

Day 1-3 Description

In Part 1 of this training you will learn the overview of the EMDR model, basic trauma neurobiology and why this is essential in utilizing and applying EMDR skills, assessment, screening, safety and stabilization, psycho education and resourcing techniques. You will review the 8 phase model as a whole and be given the opportunity to practice these initial skills. This section of training will include instruction, demonstrations, Q&A, breakout rooms, and more.

Day 4-5 Description

Part 2 of this training will focus on Phases 3-8 of Shapiro’s original 8-phase model, along with the overall implementation of EMDR processing. You will learn how to utilize EMDR in your sessions with clients, apply the specific desensitization techniques, address blocks, incorporate interweaves, integrate attachment/parts based strategies, and deploy modifications of the classic EMDR model. This portion of training will be taught through lecture, demonstrations, Q&A, break out rooms and more.



DISCLAIMER: To minimize excessive transactional burden, if you request to be converted to an “Everything Plan” membership AFTER purchasing this certification program, you may do so only within 48 hours of your registration on a 24 month plan, paid in advance at the prevailing annual rate.
