Clients dealing with trauma aren’t always receptive to the therapeutic process. And using treatment techniques that repeatedly confront clients with the horrific details of the traumas that haunt them can cause them to be avoidant, reactionary, or completely withdrawn. It’s painful for clients and clinician alike, and it doesn’t feel like healing.

Watch this 2-Day EMDR session and discover how this powerful, evidence-based treatment has helped thousands of clients safely and rapidly process their traumas without the need to focus on explicit details! You’ll learn:

Demonstrations and brief practice opportunities will give attendees an opportunity to see how EMDR is used and give them a chance to experience it themselves.
