Online EMDR Therapist Training

We have been approved to conduct 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.

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.
