    Dr. Sweeton gave not only a comprehensive look at the processes within EMDR, she also gave a lot lot of comparisons to other types of therapy outside of EMDR. She helped me better understand where EMDR stands, in general. I "feel" interventions better qnd more intuitively after Dr. Sweeton explains them because she really gets to the jelly of why/how things work. I did leave the training feeling like I needed more time to figure out where to start in terms of reviewing all of the information and handouts she gave, but I think that is a side effect of getting so much great info 🙂

    Dr. Sweet on is an incredible trainer. I recently purchased one of her on line trainings on EMDR and found it very helpful. Although I had a prior EMDR training in 2015 that was much longer , I learned so much more with Dr. Sweeton. I will definitely be taking another course with her.

    I attended Jennifer's two-day trauma certification seminar and it was by far the BEST and most informative seminar I've attended on trauma. Jennifer is very knowledgeable and really helps the clinician understand the brain and how particular interventions heal the brain and thus trauma in detailed, understandable steps. I now have valuable tools to add to my practice.

    Dr. Sweeton presents the material in an easy way to understand. I've been using EMDR since 2015 and learned so much by listening to her present. I really appreciated how she was relaxed about how she does it, telling what has worked for her, and being OK with not being an EMDR purist. This is one of the few trainings I have attended that I will probably rewatch. Good and practical information.

    I completed Dr. Jennifer Sweeton's 2-Day Intensive Trauma Treatment Certification Workshop webinar. The first day Dr. Sweeton provided education on the brain and how it functions. She broke the information down into understandable parts. Dr. Sweeton made more sense of the brain parts and functions than any training I have attended over the past 25 years. She provides slides that are not only informative, but hold your atttention. On the second day, Dr. Sweeton provided education and instruction on actual treatment techniques. I enjoyed and appreciated this information the most. Rarely have I attended a seminar where attendees are given education and guidance on actual treatment techniques along with handouts to use in treatment. It is evident she put a lot of time and attention into this well organized webinar. It was well worth my time and money. I would recommend it to anyone who works with clients who are struggling with trauma related issues.

    Dr Sweeton did an amazing job of making the brain’s pathways understandable to me, and at same time linked this to how I can approach therapy with those experiencing trauma in a ‘timely’ way, and it made perfect sense.

In particular, how she teaches different strategies for bottom-up vs top-down strategies to heal is a total game changer.

She elaborates on concepts which are complicated so that attendees can really get a grasp on the content. She answered all relevant questions and provided her personal contact information to ask questions that may not have been on topic - I really appreciated this!

    Took her CCTP training through PESI and LOVE LOVE LOVE her teaching style. She has turned me into a new neuroscience nerd. I always had a love for neuroscience but never could remember the details after the course was done. With her now I know all the things and she makes it so easy to remember. Thanks again Dr. Sweeton for coming into my life. Your training has completely changed the depth of my trauma knowledge from a neuroscience perspective and knowing all the empirical details that I didn't know before.

    Just attended a two day seminar taught by Dr. Sweeton. I had not heard of her before but I am so impressed by her teaching and the amount of information I have learned and can use right away. I have learned so many times about the parts of the brain but I felt like this time it really connected and made sense. She has a nice balance of science and practical tips.

    Completed a 2 day Intensive Trauma Treatment webinar with Dr. Sweeton. The information was top notch, and while I fully expected 16 hours of straight Zoom to be miserable, it was not, at all. As a clinician, it was extremely helpful and I really appreciated the neuroscience background. I Fully expect to use all of this information in my practice.I have one complaint, and it's a small one, and is probably less of an actual big deal than how it sat with me. Its less of a complain actually and more feedback, I guess. I'm a Licensed Independent Social Worker - so, I am independent clinician. I assume that there are a number of us viewing this webinar. A few times throughout the webinar Dr. Sweeton mentioned using social workers in her work, but the implication appeared to be that social workers are for resource location, immediate action plans, etc. While this is certainly true for some of us, and we all do a little bit of it, it just sat a little strange for me, as a LARGE portion of us are independent clinicians who do the clinical work, just as a psychologist would (with the obvious exception of psychometric testing).Again. That's a very small thing, and not really criticism, just feedback. The information was great, the powerpoint was well done and the delivery was good as well. I would definitely do another webinar with her.

    Hello. I took the 2 day EMDR with Dr. Jennifer Sweeton. Before I took the course, I was very skeptical. I mean, you see a lot of materials out there about it. I finally decided to take it and I'm so glad I did. Dr. Sweeton is a great speaker and teacher. For someone like me (I admit- I'm a bit shy), I was able to receive the instruction along with all of these people- and I didnt feel like I was going to mess it up. Plus, I felt that if I did mess it up, then Dr. Sweeton would be right there to help. What an experience... one of the best trainings I have ever been to.

    I have attended 3 workshops taught by Dr. Sweeton - and my recommendation could not be higher. Her ability to synthesize the more complex aspects of brain physiology, emotional complexities and cognitive processes - and then present it at such a "kitchen table" conversational language is truly gifted.Also, the various "helps" she teaches us allow us to bring to our clients (alongside talk-therapy) truly beneficial results in their day-to-day emotional lives.I strongly recommend two things that have been of great help to me; enroll in her monthly subscription offering AND take advantage of many of her seminars. As a bonus, Dr. Sweeton is quite generous in allowing us to use her own printed materials - which have been very beneficial in informing clients exactly what steps we are taking where we are headed.This high endorsement comes from someone who has spent nearly 30 years of study, training and experience in seeking to be beneficial to others in moving toward greater emotional well-being.Kevin Haley

One of the things I appreciate most is her presentation style which provides in-depth understanding of neuroscience for non-scientists. This allowed me to come away with language that I can share with clients about how and why the various trauma treatments work. This is very helpful for encouraging compliance with exercises they should do at home, on their own. Dr. Sweeton's presentation was thorough and gave many treatment interventions that I can use NOW with clients.

Learning about brain structures and how it impacts therapy, diagnoses, treatment, and conceptualization was very helpful and added to my interest and appreciation of this field to the therapy process. I would definitely recommend the seminar to anyone interested.

    Dr Jennifer Sweeton's 2 day EMDR training is amazing. Dr Sweeton's inclusion of the neuroscience behind trauma and EMDR was a great addition to the general EMDR training. I would highly recommend Dr Sweeton as a trainer and will definitely be attending more of her training's in the future.

I learned a lot on the day and came out wanting to run a resilience group at work ( mental health rehab setting).She really knows her stuff and no question was left unanswered. Without any hesitation I recommend this workshop to any mental health professional. I'm an OT and it was definitely worth it!

    Attended Jennifer Sweeton's webinar, "Neuroscience for Clinicians, Brain Change for Stress, Anxiety, Trauma, Moods and Substance Abuse. Although this was an all day webinar I found the presentation to be quite informative, providing me with much knowledge about brain function,, symptoms and treatment measures that I did not previously possess. She also provided information that validated measures I was already utilizing. An all day webinar has the potential to being taxing but I found that Dr. Sweeton's manner of presentation and focus on connecting brain functions to clinical relevance held my interest and attention throughout. This webinar certainly met and exceeded my expectations and left me with new ideas to use in treatment.

    Psycho-therapy is filled with quack-practitioners, so it was incredibly uplifting to be taught EMDR by a true scientist, one who is able to elucidate the subject matter by explaining the scientific rationale behind each element of the therapeutic process. After all, the best way to learn a new topic is to understand it! Dr. Sweeton is a fast-paced and articulate lecturer, and I feel my investment was money very well spent. She has my highest recommendation.

    I just completed the three-day EMDR intensive with Dr. Sweeton. I am deeply appreciative of what I received, including the valuable practice sessions applying EMD and EMDR. I have had a couple of EMDR trainings prior to this, and while they were helpful, this was by far the most helpful. The first day presentation on neuroscience was excellent context for the components of EMDR practices. Dr. Sweeton was very generous in terms of helpful materials. My EMDR competence took a definitive step forward.

    HIGHLY recommended! If you're a mental health clinician who works in the field of trauma treatment or eating disorders, I highly recommend you receive ANY of Dr. Sweeton's trainings that you can. I received EMDR training from her and it was top-notch! There are many trainers with whom you could contract for EMDR training, but her educational background gives her a far 'deeper bench' of knowledge, and it SHOWS. (She holds a Doctoral degree from Stanford Med. School, studies in behavioral genetics from Harvard Med, an additional Masters' in affective neuroscience (also, Stanford), and a stint at the National Center for PTSD.) Though neuroscience is her passion, don't, however, think that she'll talk in 'jargon.' She explains the science behind the therapeutic interventions in a way that any clinician can understand! Furthermore, she does so without watering down concepts-- which is quite a feat. At the end of the first day, I overheard several clinicians remark that Dr. Sweeton was the first trainer they had who could explain the neuroscience of trauma & healing in a manner they could understand. Several said that they now felt empowered to teach about the psychobiology of trauma and recovery with their clientele! If you are seeking a source of excellent, professional-level training, Dr. Sweeton's courses should be your first choice.

    I have been wanting to take an EMDR course for quite some time to use with my counseling clients who have experienced trauma and abuse. I could not have chosen a better introduction. Jennifer Sweeton went into depth on the neuroscience as well as the protocols, covered the nuances, and gave insightful and attuned feedback. Practice opportunities were well conducted. Her passion, compassion, knowledge, and relatability made what could potentially be a heavy topic into something manageable and exciting to learn. I definitely feel prepared to begin using EMDR with my clients in the near future.

I have attended neuroscience-type seminars in the past and gained a spotty understanding of the material but Dr. Sweeton presented the information with such clarity, I felt I had an immediate understanding of brain structures and the role they play in many psychological disorders.

    I have been a patient of Dr. Sweeton since 2016. She is hands down, THE BEST psychologist I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Starting at about five years old, I started seeing countless therapists all the way into adulthood for multiple traumas and ongoing disorders. I never really connected much with any of them, nor did I feel like they actually helped me. Dr. Sweeton has been the only one that I have connected with, felt completely comfortable with, and has helped me make progress in my mental health journey. She is very kind, down-to-earth, patient, understanding, and helps educate you about your mental health as well. I'm always so intrigued to learn from her. Dr. Sweeton gave me faith in the power of mental health professionals again. I am so grateful to have her as my psychologist and I only wish that I found her sooner. She has been such a blessing to my life! I very highly recommend her if you're looking for an amazing psychologist!

    I recently attended Dr. Sweeton's seminar: Neuroscience for the Modern Clinician and the title doesn't lie. I've been out of graduate school for a while and the information provided during this seminar made me realize I have a lot of catching up to do in regards to where the field of psychology intersects with neuroscience nowadays. There has been a lot of progress made in our understanding of the various brain pathways, how they relate and where they intersect. I feel that the material presented was solidly research-based and up-to-date. The subject matter was complex but it was presented in an exceptionally direct, clear and 'make sense' way that made it easy to understand. Dr. Sweeton knows her stuff and kept the audience engaged all the way down to that 4pm end-of-day hour.In addition to basic information about the brain and its functions, the course provided practical guidance on how to translate all that technical information into clinical insight and then took it another step further. Dr. Sweeton laid out a useful roadmap of the specific therapeutic interventions that would best serve a particular client. The information about the more non-traditional, more body-focused rather than cognitive-focused interventions was especially useful. Turns out there has been a lot of research done in that area, finally.I was looking forward to attending the seminar because I'm science-minded and thought it would catch me up on the latest research. Goal accomplished. The unexpected bonus is that I came away with new insight and new tools that will immediately impact how I work with some of my most challenging clients.

    Recently attended a training in Buffalo, NY with Dr. Sweeton on Brain Based Therapy and Practical Neuroscience. . The training and the presenter were very well organized and the information I obtained through this training has become a valuable addition to what I share with my clients. If given the opportunity I would recommend attending one of her trainings.

    I very much appreciated Dr. Sweeton's excellent presentation, Neuroscience for Clinicians. Her knowledge of and expertise on the subject matter was exceptional and understandable. I am coming away from the training with so more relevant and applicable information and techniques for working with my entire caseload. It has especially given me hope and confidence for addressing some of my most difficult cases. I would highly recommend this training to anyone providing therapeutic services to any clientele.

    I recently attended Dr. Jennifer Sweeton's 3-Day EMDR conference in Monroeville, PA and she was so thorough and knowledgeable in her experience and training-she's AMAZING! I really enjoyed how well she explained the treatment techniques and I have used what I have learned in my practice already! Thank you so much!

    I attended Dr. Sweeton's 3 day EMDR Certification Course in Monroeville, Pennsylvania last week. I learned so much during those 3 days! The presentation was clear, concise, and very hands on. I would gladly take another course with Dr. Sweeton.

    Dr. Sweeton's Neuroscience for Clinicians was one of the rate presentations that not only provide foundation knowledge but practical tools and strategies that we could incorporate in our programming immediately. I highly recommend this training.

    Neuroscience for Clinicians was an outstanding seminar that tied clinical research to practical application. Dr. Sweeton's explanations of 'the way things work' with the human brain and the impact on socio-emotional, physical, and spiritual health provided not only a clinical basis for treatment, but also a layman's approach to share basics with clients. I left the one-day seminar craving more information; I will definitely attend this seminar again when it becomes a two-day seminar with more focus on treatment strategies!

    I attended a neuroscience for clinicians training by Dr. Sweeton a few days ago and completely enjoyed it. She did a great job presenting the information, was knowledgeable and an overall great presenter. I would definitely be interested in seeing her present in the future.

    I recently attended an all day seminar titled: Neuroscience for Clinicians, taught by Dr. Sweeton. Seminars do not usually capture my full attention for the entire day but I found this one to be a bit different. Dr. Sweeton was very knowledgeable about the subject matter, was very organized in her presentation, and kept it interesting by sharing case examples. I would be very interested in attending other seminars given by Dr. Sweeton.

    Dr. Sweeton's course on Neuroscience was great. It was well organized, and packed full of pertinent and useful information that I can use with my clients. She is very knowledgeable and presents the material in an easy to understand way. It was one of the best courses I've attended.

    Dr. Sweeton was very knowledgeable in the training I attended about Neuroscience for clinicians. This is, by far, one of the most instantly useful training that I've attended throughout my career. I was able to leave the training and put into place the activities, tools and skills she discussed. More than that, I knew WHY I was using a particular technique and why it would be helpful for my clients.


    I attended Jennifer's Neuroscience workshop a few weeks ago. In my 23 years of practice, this one-day workshop is one of the best! I heartily recommend it. Well done, Jennifer! Thank you for renewing my passion and energy for this amazing work we do.

    I attended Dr. Sweeton's seminar last week Friday and was energized by the practical information and scientific facts behind many of the interventions we use. She was very knowledgeable and the day flew by like minutes. I can give my clients a better understanding of the why behind the techniques now.

    I had the privilege of attending Dr. Sweeton's Neuroscience for Clinicians one day training. Dr. Sweeton turned a traditionally boring topic into a fascinating one that seemed to complete a missing piece of the therapeutic puzzle. I hope to attend another training in the future.

    I attended Dr. Jennifer Sweeton's Neuroscience for Clinicians last week. It was amazing. She was very knowledgeable about her subject. It helped renew and energize an interest of neuroscience within me. She gave practical interventions that I have already put into place in my practice. I would definitely go hear her again if the opportunity arises.

    Jennifer is extremely knowledgeable and delivers her information with clarity. She is great about answering all your questions. I learned many practical ways to increase positive outcomes for some of my difficult to treat clients. I wish it had been several days long. Thanks Jennifer

    The seminar was career changing! I was able to better conceptualize the literature and information I had previously learned from Bessel Van Der Kolk, Eric Gentry, Brenee Brown and view from the neurological lens. Dr. Sweeton shared critical data in a succinct, reader-friendly way along with techniques applicable to specific treatment areas corresponding to areas of the brain. I have already been implementing said techniques into practice.

    I attended Dr. Sweeton's neuroscience conference last week. I really enjoyed her presentation style. She took time to answer questions, discussed practical applications and provided many different resources that I felt confident taking back to my clients. Neuroscience is not my wheel house, but I was able to understand and follow along Dr. Sweeton's presentation very well. I would highly recommend attending any presentation done by Dr. Sweeton, and hope to attend another seminar myself.

    Dr. Sweeton is not only knowledgeable, but also practical. She is well-versed in the clinical research yet knows how to translate findings to apply in the trenches of work with clients. I attended her all-day workshop in Illinois, and I wish the workshop were 2 days longer!

    I attended Dr. Sweeton's Neuroscience for Clinicians seminar a few weeks ago. It was very informative and insightful for me as I serve as a mental health diagnostician. I have attended many CE seminars over the past 4 years, but it is unprecedented that Dr. Sweeton gave all the attendees online access to the materials presented during the seminar and other practical tools that can be used in my practice. I am excited to review them all for me to become a better helper. I would like to be notified of CE events or other certification courses Dr. Sweeton presents in my area in the future.
