Healing The Whole Self Master Class: Treating
Dissociation in Harmony with EMDR Therapy (Part 1 & 2)
(Please note that due to feedback and requests from students, the master class has been made into a series of three live workshops, as opposed to including a webinars/study group format).
Whether a seasoned EMDR therapist, or one who is recently trained, we all know that clients with complex developmental trauma disorders don’t necessarily “fit the mold.” Perhaps we find ourselves feeling “stuck” with these challenging cases, wondering why the EMDR Standard Protocol isn’t “working,” baffled by why a client destabilizes, and needing extra clinical support. It is not that the EMDR standard protocol doesn’t “work,” it is actually that with complex trauma, there is a dissociative process in place that must be treated, first. Developed to provide students with both an in-person instruction as well as highly interactive online, real- time experience, this 39 hour course includes in person instruction, online based webinars and study groups, interactive discussions, as well as supplemental readings and assignments, demonstrations, and additional collaborative learning opportunities.
Equinimity As An Ethical Practice:
An Equine-Facilitated Healing Retreat for Therapists
Friday, February 7th, 2020
Today’s clinicians are challenged to keep a sense of calm & equanimity whilst witnessing & working with the most complex examples of human suffering. Clinicians, both in the private and public sectors are challenged with managing intense case-loads, whilst attempting to also nourish and sustain a health life-work balance. As a result, our risk for burnout is high if we are unable to dedicate ourselves to self-care, including identifying the blocks that impact our ethical ability to maintain our emotional fitness as healing professionals.
With this in mind, this Equine-Assisted EMDR based workshop is facilitated by the founder of Equilateral: The Equine-Assisted EMDR Protocol and is designed to offer clinicians the opportunity to experience nurturing and inspiring opportunities in partnership with the equine.

The full EMDRIA Approved EMDR trainings (Part 1, 2, + 10 Hours of Consultation) are pre-scheduled throughout the calendar year in Arizona and biannually in Bennington, Vermont.

Please note that space is limited to 10 participants per EMDR training, and that these events due sell out in advance
The EquiLateral™ Equine-Assisted EMDR Courses
for EMDR Therapists & Equine Professionals
Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy is a comprehensive & integrative treatment of choice for trauma treatment. EquiLateral™ is the Equine-Assisted EMDR Protocol and is the premiere integration of Equine-Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) and EMDR to become Equine-Assisted EMDR. We are still doing the eight phases of EMDR, but through an equine facilitated approach. This is the first training of its kind, and is approved by the EMDR International Association for 15 EMDRIA Credits.
In this one of a kind training, Sarah personally takes participants step-by-step through the eight phases of EMDR in partnership with equine(s), to help you learn the “how to’s” of integrating EMDR and Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) through the EquiLateral™ Equine-Assisted EMDR Protocol.
