EMDR Basic Training reviews

“Cannot Recommend Highly Enough! I just completed my 3rd weekend of training and I cannot recommend this training highly enough. Dr. Rouanzoin, Dr. Gottlieb and our trainers were consistently prepared, excellent presenters, knowledgable and experienced, wise and gracious, open to all questions, responsive and helpful, and I left this final weekend feeling encouraged, empowered, and excited to be a small part of helping others heal. What a gift these trainers and EMDR therapy are to us all!”

“The training our clinical volunteers received was nothing short of exemplary. EMDR Professional Training has enabled our already stalwart program to be even more widespread and effective. On behalf of everyone here at VALEAP, thank you for your professionalism, undeniable expertise, and passion for helping others. Many of the heroic lives this program impacts and saves, will be attributable to the extension of your hearts, to ours. ”

“Best Training I've Ever Done! This has been a professional and personal training of a lifetime. I am a better person and therapist as a result- I highly recommend it!”

“This was such a wonderful and informative course, thank you so much to EMDR Professional Training!”

“This was an incredible course and opportunity.”

“This was an amazing training. It was thorough, fun, and I felt confident when I left that I am capable of doing this.”

“The course was absolutely amazing and has revolutionized my clinical practice!”

“This training was absolutely wonderful. I started weekend 1 with very minimal knowledge of EMDR and feeling very unsure of my ability to be successful with this. Ending weekend 3 I feel very confident that I will be able to utilize this type of therapy to help my clients in ways that I have not been able to before. Definitely would recommend this training to anyone who works with individuals with trauma!”

“ Exceptional. This training expanded not only my understanding of Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing therapy and gave me a strong foundation to treat trauma in individuals, it gave me a deep understanding of trauma itself. The training is valuable beyond words. I learned more than I could quantify - the depth, breadth, and width of not only knowledge but applied knowledge. My heartfelt thanks to this team!”
