EMDR Educators’ EMDR trainees are inspired and excited to get back to their work and employ their new skills. They are excited and inspired to get back to their office to try their new skills. They become highly motivatated to improve the world one hour at a time (not a bad way to spend a day!).
Perhaps my age and life experience afford me an understanding of the struggle in mastering a new art. I have this down with a calm, peaceful and encouraging affectation. Consultees have said to me while they are in session with their clients, “I can hear Dr. Dobo’s voice saying….”
I have a degree in music. Musicians are not always supportive people. I had a lot of EMDR therapy on my music school “juries”. Y,es that is what they’re called—juries. Play for us so we can judge you, they say.
I take measures to help ensure my trainings are the exact opposite of that experience for my EMDR trainees. Here at EMDR Educators you’ll find an atmosphere that’s rich with support and encouragement. It’s non-judgement but professional.
Encouraging the trainees to be patient with themselves and their development is a characterisitic of our style. It’s our brand. We insure our EMDR trainers are patient with every trainee, accepting them at the stage where they are.
Space is limited in every training and open spots don’t last long. If you haven’t already, be sure to…
What Actual Trainees Have Said About Dr. Andrew Dobo and EMDR Educators’ EMDR Training :
Dr. Dobo’s EMDR training was excellent. The education, knowledge, and training provided was thorough, tailored to meet clinician’s needs, and highly enjoyable. The training allowed me to provide EMDR skillfully and confidently, and his post-workshop consultation was informative, constructive and collaborative. I recommend this training to those interested in offering EMDR Therapy.

I recently attended the 5 Day intensive EMDR training with Dr. Dobo. It’s a little hard to explain my experience during those 5 days. First, I was very surprised that EMDR was nothing like what I was expecting it to be. I had seen an old video of EMDR a decade ago in a class that I took and I had the impression that it was similar to prolonged exposure therapy with the addition of a hocus pocus voodoo gimmick. But that is not at all what I found when I attended the training. Instead, what I learned in the training is how to provide a short term, evidenced based therapy that effectively treats a variety of mental health issues. I was honestly surprised and impressed by the effectiveness of the therapy and the level of confidence I gained in my ability to actually use this therapy to treat my veterans. I am now looking forward to the ongoing support Dr. Dobo provides in the consultation calls and I am happy to report that I am already using the first of the 8 step EMDR protocol to get my veterans started in their recovery.
