EMDR Training NYC Fall 2020

Approved for 50 CE Credits for NY State Social Workers AND Licensed Mental Health Counsellors (details below) for reimbursement by the Dept. of Veteran Affairs and for credit by the EMDR International Association. Also New Jersey State Social Workers may be eligible to receive CE credits as well.

A Better Training Model

The EMDR International Association ( has recently approved "virtual" trainings in EMDR; however, because of the serious doubts I have about this format in terms of its effectiveness and its safety, I have developed a model for virtual training that I believe provides better, safer training. The model is a "hybrid" combining virtual learning with real, face to face in person practice. Based on an Australian training model developed by Graham Taylor and his colleagues, each trainee will be paired with another clinician with whom they feel both comfortable and safe enough to be in a room together during the small group work. (If you don’t currently have a colleague to train with, I’ll be glad to help you find one.) The primary lecture material, videos, etc., will be delivered virtually. The small group supervision would also be delivered virtually, but you will physically be with someone with whom you can actually practice EMDR in a much more realistic, emotionally safer setting.

Because I think the small group work is so important, when the need for social distancing is over and we can resume contact safely on a larger scale, everyone who has taken a virtual training with me will also be offered an optional in person small group practicum with an in person facilitator—at no extra charge.
