Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a powerful therapeutic method for healing trauma-based problems and bringing unfinished issues to a completion. This healing modality based in neuroscience, combines mindfulness, cognitive behavioral therapy, and somatic practices into one treatment modality. EMDR treats symptoms such as: emotional, sexual & physical abuse, accidents, surgery, and the emotional traumas of grief & loss. EMDR transforms the impact of childhood abuse & neglect. As EMDR is utilized to transform early conditioning, it releases coping patterns held in the mind & body. EMDR allows one to open to authentic genuineness, living ones purpose, & creates spiritual transformation. Through lecture, hands-on practice, and demonstrations, participants will learn protocols and procedures for using EMDR with a wide range of diagnostic categories.

What others have said about our training:
“Because of this training, I have a better awareness and understanding of dissociation. We give the DES at my work but I was never trained to understand it, apply it, and what to do about it.I was given specific techniques to help with this. I had felt limited in my practice as a residential therapist, up until now. “
“ I am moving beyond trauma informed care, to in-depth trauma treatment... I finally feel I can help change the outcome trajectory for my clients. I feel hopeful for the first time in a long time... I am finally able to make a deeper impact”
“I am much more attentive and attuned with my clients’ somatic reactions. The therapeutic relationship that I have with my clients has seemed to happen faster, and it feels as though the connection is much deeper, this is vital for my CSAT work.”
“Before I felt like I was good at stabilizing my clients, but then I didn’t know what to do next... EMDR has given me the next steps to work on a foundational level and get people past their trauma.“
“I am a better therapist because of my deeper knowledge of dissociation. I feel empowered for the first time in a long time.”
“I have a deeper insight into how trauma shows up in the body. I know better how to access this, and most importantly I can normalize this for my clients.”
“Finally! Something to reignite my fire as a clinician. I can’t wait to go deeper.”
