This foundational EMDR therapy training brings together perinatal mental health specialists passionate about raising the level of care they provide in their perinatal work - and in all their clinical work.

Completing our full training program is a multi-tiered process, consisting of:

Part I Training (3 Days= 21 total hours of Lecture and Practicum): In-person training that covers the basics of trauma, the adaptive information processing model, trauma-informed stabilization, and the basic methodology and mechanisms of action used in EMDR Therapy. View Part I agenda and objectives HERE. You will be able to practice EMDR with certain clients after completion of Part I.

Part II Training (3 Days= 21 total hours of Lecture and Practicum): In-person training with enhanced practicum content, covering best practices for using EMDR Therapy with special populations and in the complex scenarios of clinical practice; advanced content on ethics and neurobiology also covered, in addition to working with the art of case conceptualization.

You may choose to complete your consultation hours with Dr. Tesler-Stein or to consult with other approved consultants on the faculty of the Institute for Creative Mindfulness.
