*These Virtual Basic EMDR Trainings are approved by the EMDR International Association with an innovative format. The training is designed to lead participants in a sequential learning experience emphasizing conceptual clarity, procedural details, and skill development through a combination of lectures, discussions drawn from actual EMDR therapy sessions, and supervised practice sessions to develop skills throughout the training. Participants will learn via lecture, video, demonstrations, Q & A sessions, role play demonstrations, small group exercises, and supervised practicums. Each participant will experience EMDR as both clinician and client through two training modules. The format of these workshops has been designed by Carol Miles MSW, LCSW LLC, and approved by EMDRIA.

“Carol was very prepared to transfer this training to a virtual training. She planned ahead and anticipated any potential issues that could arise so it really flowed very well. It was really helpful to learn about the interweaves and adjustments to make when working with special populations. I really got a lot out of it and feel much more prepared to continue working with clients. I also enjoyed the zoom and canvas experience. It was a unique way to complete this training and was not at all disruptive to the process.” (Virtual Training 2020)
 “Carol is AMAZING. Despite technology issues due to the bad weather the first day, Ms. Carol persisted and pushed forward to deliver the material. I found her to be incredibly considerate and professional. I would actively seek out future learning opportunities from her. I learned so much from this training and I plan to continue reviewing and practicing growing my skills. I am so thankful for this experience. Thank you to all the faculty for your hard work and dedication!” (Virtual Training 2021)
