The halls of the Hyatt Regency in Orange County, California, are quiet once more after a fantastic weekend at the EMDRIA National Conference.

The Hyatt Regency Orange CountyConference attendees this year experienced an array of thoughtful presentations and enjoyed time networking with colleagues. EMDR Professional TrainingTM, a major sponsor of the event, debuted advance coursework including a growing list of online courses and live training.

Many EMDRIA attendees also joined the membership of EMDR Professional TrainingTM where they can take advantage of several opportunities and benefits throughout the year including free study groups with Dr. Curt Rouanzoin, monthly Zoom meetings with Dr. Michelle Gottlieb, and more.
