EMDR Therapy Training

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) Therapy is an evidence based, treatment modality for trauma. Healing TREE facilitates 52 hour trainings (including post-training supervision) done by an internationally recognized training team in this modality which is highly effective but often cost-prohibitive. We currently provide these trainings for therapists working at social service agencies serving children in the foster system, 95% of whom are below the poverty level. Our trainings are available for clinicians serving any community, anywhere in the country, with groups as small as 10.

Why we need to train clinicians in EMDR

Removing Barriers

Traditional modalities like CBT, or talk therapy, don’t engage the part of the brain that is injured during trauma. EMDR is a leading, evidence-based, brain-body focused trauma treatment modality recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO), American Psychological Association (APA), Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMSHA) and the National Registry of Evidence-Based Programs and Practices. Yet many clinicians are not trained in EMDR therapy due to it being cost prohibitive. This is especially true for clinicians outside of private practice who serve those in great need which leaves the most marginalized populations without this quality of care.

Transforming the lives of children in the foster system

The Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) Study shows that childhood trauma is often the root cause of later in life mental and physical illness, addiction, and other leading causes of death and dysfunction. Our program ensures that children in the foster system have access to trauma-focused treatment – going beyond treating just the symptoms and addressing the root issue of their trauma – which helps them break cycles of abuse, poverty and poor mental and physical health.

See the Difference Your Donation Makes

Our program has seen record breaking results due to generous donors such as yourself. We have currently provided over 4,000 youth in the foster care system EMDR therapy. We have already seen a reduction in their hospital bills, medication and self-harm and, because of this, some do not even qualify for their same level of care anymore. Your gift will have a similar impact on individuals needing trauma focused therapy, transforming their lives, families, communities and ultimately, our society.
