Online EMDR Therapist Training
With the uncertainty of the Covid-19 virus situation, we have been approved to continue throughout 2021 conducting our EMDR therapist trainings online. While this is a different environment for a training – being at home or in your office on your computer – we encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity. In this case, the training dates and times are the same as were scheduled for the in-person trainings as listed on the CompassionWorks website.
There are minimal requirements for the online training: You will need to be able to have a quiet space for participation with your fully functioning computer connected to the internet. Your computer must have full audio and video capabilities. Using a Chrome or Firefox browser is preferred. If you need to attend by smartphone, while not ideal, it is also possible.
The platforms we will be using to provide the EMDR Therapist Training online are Zoom.us and CompassionWorks.com. The account you create in CompassionWorks.com will provide access to the course materials, including the daily Zoom link, the training manual, pre-test, posttest, and more. Zoom.us does have a specific minimum requirement for computer specs. Please view the minimum requirements for Zoom.
One of the great things about EMDR is that it can be done very effectively online. With EMDR therapy, you have the ability to go beyond talk therapy or whatever you’re currently doing to really help people create effective, positive change in their lives with EMDR. Of course, during the training we cover doing EMDR therapy online, the precautions and protocols, and as you learn and practice the EMDR procedure during your breakout sessions, you will experience the values of doing EMDR online, as well.
We are excited to be able to offer to you these trainings online and these trainings are offered to qualified mental health professionals across the country. We are using CE-Classes to provide the continuing education credit for people with licensure for states outside of Texas.
The technical specifications for using Zoom, including computer type, operating systems and browsers are <here>.
We are using CompassionWorks.com to manage the materials such as the training manual, online discussion, quizzes, evaluations, and other resources.
You will use the account you create during the purchase process to login and view your course and course materials. There is a login icon at the top right corner of the CompassionWorks.com homepage as well as all interior webpages.
