Participants’ Reviews:

“This is an incredible idea!!! Some of us in the field of EMDR are located in rural areas hundreds of miles from cities where it would be more convenient to update our EMDR training. It costs me well over $1,200 to $1,500 dollars to go to a weekend EMDR educational opportunity in Denver, Boulder or Fort Collins, Colorado. Your program is such a fantastic opportunity to enhance our training in the wonderful world of EMDR right here where we live and practice.”


“I really enjoyed this training adventure and think I got more out of this session than any training I ever received.”

W. B.

“Excellent training on crisis intervention & EMDR. I have taught the courses before. I enjoyed this a lot and learned or reframed some very good material. Thanks!”

K. W.

“This was the best and most in depth training for EMDR that I have ever seen. I’m glad I got it on DVD so I can keep going back to absorb it all. I would love to look into another training from these presenters.”

M. H.

“Great presentation. Hope more EMDR clinicians use it. It is very helpful. You did a great job. I’ve been doing this for 20 years and learned something. Great review for me and helpful for current practice. Thanks.”

J. K.

“This was an outstanding DVD seminar and I am thrilled with all the information disseminated. Thank you!”

N. B.

“It is a great professional resource to have access to the work of two of the most outstanding clinicians in the DC area through this DVD. Knowing that I can view their sessions at any time from any location accommodates my irregular schedule and assures that I can review sections as my work requires.”


“The case studies allowed me to move beyond presentation and visualize how these techniques would be implemented in session with my own clients. It is obvious Nancy and Tracy have a clear understanding of the subject matter and present the material with thoughtfulness, compassion and ease.”


“The program was excellent! This was one of the better workshops on DVD. Thank you so much. I learned a lot and will use it in my practice. I feel excited to try it with clients where I have been a bit stuck. I am very grateful for your sharing all these wonderful tools that were concrete and not just theory.”
