I took the EMDR 5 day Intensive Training. This was easily the best training I have done in over a decade of practicing. I cannot recommend taking courses with Dr. Dobo enough! Do yourself a favor, and sign up!

This was one of the best trainings I have attended. The information was powerful and important. Dr. Dobo was an incredible instructor and is clearly a wonderful psychologist for his clients. I strongly recommend attending his trainings at your first opportunity!

Dr. Dobo and the EMDRIA training is TIP TOP! It exceeded my expectations. I did not think I would have an actual ability to provide this treatment so quickly after this (very thorough) training, but I do! I recommend it highly!

I completed EMDR workshop with Dr. Andrew Dobo amd husky assistant Sandra Stanford, LMHC in March of this year. It was an extraordinarily wonderful training on so many levels! His teaching style is a combination of vast knowledge of EMDR, the sharing of his rich clinical experiences, and his down-to-earth personality which makes for a great training! Sandra added just the right amount of warmth and clinical expertise to the experience! We had a mix of lecture which was mainly Dr. Dobo explaining EMDR and sharing clinical videos with us interlaced with lively discussions. We worked with other therapists in the afternoon practicing what we learned and honing our EMDR clinical skills. I met such great therapists too but there that I continue to stay in touch and learn with! It was an amazing experience and I can’t recommend it enough and hope to take more trainings with Dr. Dobo, Sandra & EMDRIA!!

I recently completed Dr. Dobo's 5-Day Intensive (EMDRIA Approved) EMDR Training in Tampa. This is one of the absolute best clinical trainings I have received to date! I highly recommend EMDR training with Dr. Dobo.

If you are a counselor looking for effective strategies to mitigate or even eliminate undesirable distress for your clients, this is the training you've been waiting for! I recently completed the 5 day intensive EMDRIA-approved EMDR training course with Dr. Dobo and could not be more satisfied. Throughout the week, Dr. Dobo focused on application and effective strategies to facilitate the client-healing process via EMDR. Strong emphasis was placed on client comfort and safety, as well as dispelling misinformation about EMDR. Finally, the opportunity to network with such a wide range of similar-minded mental health practitioners from across the United States was invaluable. Highly recommended and well worth the cost.

I took the 5 day intensive EMDR beginner training and it was amazing! Dr. Dobo is so passionate and knowledgable about EMDR. He designed the training to be both didactic and experiential, allowing us to gain important knowledge and understanding about EMDR as well as practice EMDR as both the client and the therapist. Dr. Dobo and the other coaches, Sandra and Pamela, are very friendly, personable, and nonjudgmental which allowed for a rich learning experience in a safe environment. I feel prepared to begin using EMDR with clients and would recommend this training to clinicians who are interested in get trained in EMDR!

Why do EMDR in your mental health practice?

Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) is both a fast-acting method of treatment for several common mental health ailments and a theory about how the brain processes, stores, and recalls information.

EMDR heals without drugs and concerns for the related side effects. It’s one of only two therapies recommended by WHO for treating mental health trauma in children.

With EMDR, therapists get to heal their clients and transform their lives instead of just treating or covering up symptoms. Clients aren’t forced to share information, thoughts, and experiences they don’t want to but are still able to make significant progress.

As the popularity and demand for EMDR continue to soar, becoming an EMDRIA-approved EMDR therapist will benefit your mental health career and practice as you continue to make a substantial difference in your clients’ lives. And EMDR plays well with other therapies.
