Purpose:  The CompassionWorks Mindfulness Retreat is for licensed mental health professionals on using mindfulness in their clinical practice.  While this retreat is open to all therapists, we will be using and teaching techniques from Eye-movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) to help enhance the process.   Non-EMDR trained therapists won’t be learning how to use eye-movements but will be taught ancillary techniques to use with others and on themselves.

The registration process is as follows:

    1. Register with CompassionWorks  to pay your tuition and reserve your spot.  At that time you can indicate if you want a single occupancy, or double occupancy with your own roommate, or double occupancy with another attendee.
    2. After you have registered with us, we will put you in touch with Shannon Baker, our Event Coordinator at Ghost Ranch, to complete your room request and meal plan.

Intended Audience: This retreat is for all Mental Health Professionals (EMDR trained and non-EMDR trained) who want to learn about Mindfulness, EMDR and  Body Awareness and to use it with their clients in their clinical practice. You do not need to be trained in EMDR to attend this workshop but you will come away from it knowing more about it – when to refer clients, how to use it in your own experience or possibly decide to become an EMDR trained therapist, yourself.

If you’re attending as an individual but want a roommate to the split room expense, let us know and we’ll try to arrange that.  If, however, a roommate doesn’t appear then you will be responsible for the individual room cost.
