This online EMDR Training is for professionals interested in providing EMDR Therapy to Bilingual clients (Spanish-English). The didactic sessions will be facilitated in English and taught by a native Spanish speaker. Language assistance around translations and saying will be provided throughout the training as well. The trainees will have the option to practice EMDR therapy in Spanish, English, and even Spanglish. This training may be a good option for non-native-Spanish-speaking therapists who would like to be more culturally sensitive and improve their service to Spanish-speaking clients.

A General Note About Approvals
Please also note that APA-approved sponsors are accepted by many state boards, such as California BBS and major licensure boards within the state of Pennsylvania. In both of these cases, separate paperwork does not need to be filled out. Many state boards also accept out-of-state providers, which is why our Ohio approvals appear on every training. In some states, pre- or post-program approval forms must be sent, and you are responsible for checking into the rules of the licensure board in your state as to what is required. Please let your trainer, Irene M. Rodriguez know if you need support documentation in any way for these pre or post-program approval applications.
