Why choose EMDR Professional Training?

Michelle and Curt

While there are many choices for EMDR training, quality and experience matter. Curt Rouanzoin, Ph.D. trained and traveled with Francine Shapiro and has trained thousands of clinicians worldwide. Michelle Gottlieb, Psy.D. has made presentations in other countries, trained clinicians, and has taught in the field of psychology for years. Together, Curt and Michelle bring a unique blend of skills and experience with equal commitment to healing trauma in their own clinical practice and by training others.

Basic Training

EMDR Professional Training’s EMDR Basic Training is completed over three weekends — 2-1/2 days each weekend – for a total of 57 hours of training (more training than EMDRIA – the EMDR member organization – requires at a lower cost than many other organizations!). After completing training, participants will have access to taped lectures and videos. Further, consultation is built into the three weekends, so it is not necessary to find consultation beyond the basic training. At the close of the third weekend of EMDR Basic Training, participants have completed the course.

Advanced Trainings/CEs

EMDR Professional Training also offers Advanced Trainings/CEs for the trained EMDR clinician. The CEs will be available online and courses can be completed on demand. CE offerings will run the gamut from “boot camp” refreshers to cutting-edge EMDR therapy with top names in the field. Sign up below and we will send you our latest offerings as they become available!
