Quick Info

Join us for a Virtual Trainer Day event this Fall on October 27, 2023.

EMDR Trainers navigate challenges and opportunities as part of their role as educators. Participants in EMDR training usually come with their busy schedules, years of life experience, practice with other therapeutic modalities, and different styles of learning and relating. EMDRIA Trainer Day allows you to join other trainers and engage in professional development focused explicitly on essential training topics. These topics include maintaining a positive learning environment while working with challenging trainees and ideas for navigating different learning styles. We will also discuss ways to embrace principles and strategies of inclusion, diversity, equity, and access (IDEA).

Registration Fee? $50 members ($75 non-members).
