8 Years of EMDR Trainings

Thank you for offering this training online! Although I was apprehensive at first, I believe the online format was extremely effective – maybe even more so than in person as it afforded the opportunity to feel safe to share with our co-therapists! I will definitely be recommending this training to my colleagues!

What People Are Saying about Our Online Trainings

“My MFT students have completed Compassion Works training the last two years. It has been very cool for our students to be able to offer low-cost EMDR as a service to the community. Many of our graduates have continued to use it in their private practices. Even if our students choose not to use EMDR, the skills and knowledge gained is still invaluable. They gain a deep understanding of trauma and its effects on the brain and body and they learn skills and techniques for keeping clients within their window of tolerance and for helping clients manage emotional reactions. I wish I had received this level of training in my masters program. My students are ahead of the curve.”
