Training for Clinicians

Mental health professionals are faced with challenges that can be unique, sensitive, acutely weighty. Having a stronger skillset for holding space for grief and trauma, navigating cultural humility surrounding the connections between race and mental health, and becoming better equipped to provide support and options for individuals and communities of underrepresented and marginalized identities can not only support you as a clinician, but also make a huge impact for your client base.

We offer several forms of trainings, some of which are open enrollment, and some of which are customized for individual clinicians or mental health professional groups and institutions. Customized trainings are available for groups of 12 or more. Contact us today to learn more about a tailored training for your cohort.

Shakira also conducts EMDR In Color trainings in conjunction with Rivers Edge Institute. EMDR In Color is a semi-private Basic training aimed specifically at clinicians of color who work with marginalized groups and racial trauma. Shakira has provided support for over 500 clinicians of color being trained in EMDR, and supports many in becoming certified. EMDR In Color was developed as a collaborative effort to share EMDR with other clinicians in a manner that better addresses the issues surrounding diversity and race, while creating an affordable option allowing a greater number to participate. EMDR In Color has not only become a place to share EMDR, but has also fostered a community of practitioners who relate, support, and grow together in an ever-changing world.
