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).

Dr. Carlton Green
Dr. Carlton Green has worked alongside Dr. Jernigan-Noesi and Jernigan and Associates, Inc. for more than a decade. He brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise regarding the identification of day-to-day, as well as institutional practices, that may serve to uphold experiences of interpersonal oppression. Dr. Green is a facilitator and trainer with specific expertise in Sexual Orientation and Gender Diversity. Dr. Green is the former Director of Diversity Training & Education in the Office of Diversity & Inclusion at the University of Maryland – College Park. As a former administrator, he frequently collaborates within academic institutions to assess and identify how race and culture may be influencing person-level interactions (e.g., advisor-advisee/mentor-mentee/supervisor-employee relationships), as well as organization-wide outcomes (e.g., underrepresentation of racially and ethnically diverse trainees). Dr. Green has provided various co-curricular units with guidance pertinent to addressing issues related to diversity and inclusion and supporting those who are underrepresented and marginalized within the system. He has also facilitated process groups for employees on identifying how oppressive institutional climates negatively affect inclusion. In his consulting work, Dr. Green has primarily focused on bringing attention to how power and oppression continuously marginalize non-White people in LGBTQIA+ communities. He has co-chaired workshops and led task forces for professional associations on dismantling racism, which resulted in the formation of the Leadership, Equity, and Diversity (LEAD) Working Group. His leadership led to the adaptation policies to further enhance the racial and gender identity equity in the leadership structure of professional associations.
