EMDR Study Group

Learn from other EMDR therapists

EMDR therapy has a steep learning curve, so therapists often need support and encouragement to gain professional confidence and mastery of EMDR clinical skills. They often benefit from conferring with experienced trauma therapists about standard and innovative approaches with challenging clients.  For this reason, a FREE monthly EMDR Study Group for any mental health professional who has completed at least part of an EMDRIA Approved Basic EMDR Training is available:

2nd Thursday of Every Month
8:30 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.
Due to the COVID-19 situation, this Group is currently meeting via Zoom. For more information email larrynieters@gmail.com.
