Completing our full training program is a multi-tiered process.
Successful completion of this program constitutes the completion of an EMDR Therapy Training Program and allows you to practice EMDR Therapy within your clinical scope of practice. Earning the EMDRIA Certified EMDR Therapist distinction requires additional training and supervision that you can complete with us or another party if you wish to go on for this distinction.
Shaped with perinatal mental health providers in mind, The Touchstone Institute offers two levels of trainings to start off or enrich practitioners' journeys with EMDR therapy.
Participants in these EMDRIA-approved trainings will not only learn the ins and outs of practicing EMDR, but will also become a part of a growing network of perinatal professionals working to find new, creative ways to best serve their clients.
