Welcome to the EMDR Support Network

Training and consultation with experienced and supportive EMDR consultants

A few words about us

EMDR Support Network is proud to offer Basic Training in EMDR.  The Basic Training is approved by EMDRIA, the primary professional organization for EMDR therapists.  After completing the training and accompanying consultation, a practitioner is an “EMDR Trained” therapist.  Therapists who have completed basic training can attend advanced trainings offered by EMDRIA, the EMDR Institute, EMDR Trauma Recovery-HAP, and private trainers.

We are happy to work with individual therapists, private practices, non profit agencies, hospitals and other groups to provide the Basic Training in EMDR.  Please contact us to discuss how we can work with you to meet the goal of bringing effective trauma therapy to therapists and clients
