Make The Connection
As a mental health professional, you know that the effectiveness of psychotherapy depends largely on the connection between therapist and client. We believe the same is true for effective professional training and consultation. While you can learn from a book or video, a great training brings the information to life and fosters important new connections with peers, mentors…even global organizations that keep you plugged into the latest research and evidence-based treatment evolutions.

EMDR: A Powerful & Proven Psychotherapy
EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. It is an evidence-based treatment for children, teens, and adults. From premiere residential treatment centers to community mental health agencies to private practices around the world, over 100,000 trained EMDR therapists have helped millions of people reduce suffering and restore hope. More than 30 positive controlled research studies support the benefits of EMDR for depression, PTSD, and more. That’s why EMDR Therapy is endorsed by the World Health Organization, the American Psychiatric Association, and the Department of Veterans’ Affairs, among others, for the treatment of PTSD and trauma.
Comprehensive Treatment for Simple to Complex Cases
Research shows that adverse life events, including early attachment injuries and developmental trauma, often show up later as depression, anxiety, anger, health issues, relationship problems, substance abuse, or compulsive behaviors.
EMDR Therapy offers a flexible and comprehensive approach to understanding and treating the basis of current dysfunction. EMDR can dramatically reduce or eliminate disturbing symptoms, distressing emotions, and unwanted behaviors…while fostering positive new perspectives and increased resilience. EMDR therapists help clients heal past wounds, eliminate current triggers, and prepare for future success.
