Online Course Available Soon! EMDR Professional Training presents Becoming Known: A relational model for Parts/Ego State work in EMDR Therapy, an advanced training with Andrew Seubert, LMHC, NCC.  The author of several publications including his books The Courage to Feel: A Practical Guide to the Power and Freedom of Emotional Honesty (2008) and How Simon Left His Shell:  The Courage to Feel for Young People (2014), Seubert presents this advanced course as a practical training in the integration of "parts" or ego state work with EMDR practice.
