About the Presenter Dr. Najmeh Hourmanesh:

I received my training as a school psychologist at the University of Utah in the Department of Educational Psychology; I did my internship at UNI. Over the years I have worked in public schools (mainly Title I schools), The Children Center, and in private practice.   In my private practice, I primarily work with individuals of all ages with Complex PTSD including children, adolescents, and adults. I train U of U doctoral Interns in various therapy modalities including TF-CBT, IFS, EMDR, Play Therapy, and Sand Tray Therapy.  I also consult with other clinicians who are pursuing their certification in EMDR or IFS.  Finally, I am one of the facilitators in the workshops provided by Farnsworth Lobenstine, LICSW, on “Integration of Structural Dissociation, Ego State Therapy and EMDR Therapy”.
