What sets this training apart?

You'll learn directly from two of the most recognized names in EMDR training: Arielle Schwartz, PhD, CCTP-II, E-RYT, and Megan Salar, LCSW, ACADC, CCTP-II, EMDR-C. Both are best-selling authors and experienced EMDR-certified clinicians who have taught thousands of people just like you how to confidently and safely use EMDR.

Their distinctive approach to EMDR stands out among therapists and will make you stand out to clients. Megan and Arielle incorporate integrative somatic, Internal Family Systems, Parts Work, Gestalt, and other techniques into their training giving you a comprehensive skill set to overcome both common and uncommon therapy obstacles.

Our training program covers all the essentials of EMDR, but unlike other trainings, we don't stop at single-incident trauma. You'll learn to handle anything your caseload throws at you including complex trauma clients, chronic presentations, challenging co-occurring mental health diagnoses, and more. And with therapist-to-therapist clinical commentary between our two experts, you'll develop a deep understanding of why each intervention is chosen and how it can be used to treat each unique client.

PLUS, you'll get bonus content on Advanced Adaptations for EMDR and Self-of-the-Therapist training you won't find anywhere else.

When you register and join Arielle and Megan, you'll receive a clear clinical roadmap that covers everything from the first session to the last, ensuring you have a solid foundation in EMDR. You'll also have access to video demonstrations of techniques that you can watch as many times as you need, as well as videos of actual sessions with real clients. PLUS, you'll get printable assessments, scales, scripts, and more to make your therapy sessions easier and more effective.

Arielle and Megan come together for deep-dive conversations throughout the entire course, giving you an inside look into the minds of these two masters, and a head start on your journey to providing safe and effective EMDR therapy.

This course is designed to work for you and help simplify your schedule, so you can provide the highest standard of care to your clients. You can access the training materials online, at your own pace, and from the comfort of your own home, office, or even through our app. You can also revisit the materials as often as you need to reinforce your learning.

Frequently Asked Questions

This course is intended to be a very comprehensive starting point giving you everything you need to learn about using EMDR.

Our trainers designed this program so you can start using all the valuable tools from Phases 1 and 2 they share right away with clients — enhancing your practice even if you never take another step toward EMDR mastery.

EMDR provides a clinical roadmap to compassionately explore and treat your clients' trauma without re-triggering pain that can de-rail treatment or even cause clients to withdraw from therapy. Importantly, EMDR is one of the most scientifically validated and evidenced-based trauma treatments ever developed.

Don't just take it from us, EMDR is one of the most effective trauma treatments by internationally respected trauma treatment facilities. In fact, EMDR has the highest recommendation across most clinical practice guidelines, including the Veterans Affairs/Department of Defense (VA/DoD) Clinical Practice Guideline for Management of PTSD, the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies (ISTSS), United Kingdom's National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence, and Australian National Health and Medical Research Council. The American Psychological Association (APA) gave EMDR a conditional rating.

You're most of the way there. These 36 hours fulfill all didactic requirements to become a Certified EMDR Clinician (EMDR-C) through Evergreen Certifications. To take the next step toward certification, complete 6 practice hours to improve your confidence and competence in delivering EMDR therapy, PLUS 10 hours of group consultation with an approved Evergreen EMDR consultant to ensure you get the feedback and support you need once you start using EMDR in actual sessions.
