ESDM Advanced Training Workshops

ESDM Canada is motivated to assist professionals wanting to access an ESDM Advanced Training Workshop  in their home or neighbouring communities. ESDM Canada's certified trainers live in different parts of Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada and we each work in professional capacities outside of providing opportunities for ESDM training. Depending on availability and need, we will do our best to accommodate each unique request. All requests for workshops are reviewed on a first come first serve basis. Once a request is received, we will work with interested parties to find suitable arrangements to support the occurrence of an ESDM Advanced Training Workshop in an appropriate community location, based on need and availability.  Although we are based in BC, we are happy to travel within Canada and internationally upon request.

All professionals wanting to complete the ESDM Advanced Training Workshop must have completed the ESDM Online Introductory Workshop prior to starting the Advanced Training Workshop. We do our best to update our current listing of EDSM Advanced Training Workshops in Canada. Please contact us for more detailed information and to discuss your Advanced Training Workshop needs. 

ESDM Certification

Working one-to-one with an ESDM Certified Trainer 

Once the Online Introductory Workshop and the Advanced Training Workshop have been completed, the final step to become an ESDM certified therapists involves working 1-1 with an ESDM certified trainer through submission of your written and video-taped ESDM work. Details of what is required for certification will be thoroughly reviewed at your ESDM Advanced Training Workshop. The process of submitting your work to your trainer should commence within several weeks of completing the advanced training workshop. The certification process is typically completed within one year.  

Interest in completing the certification process should be communicated with one of your Advanced Workshop Trainers as soon as you have come to the decision. Please review how to become an ESDM certified therapist for details.
