About Evidence Based Training Solutions

Evidence Based Training Solutions (EBTS) is dedicated to quality dissemination and training of evidence-based psychotherapies. We are an intentionally small company which means that, compared to some of our competitors, we are able to focus on quality over quantity.

EBTS not only provides superior evidence-based trainings but offers clinicians a much-needed opportunity for self-care and relaxation. Our trainings typically span 4-5 days from 9am-12:15pm each day and are held in popular travel destinations around the world, leaving your afternoons free to sip a pool-side cocktail or soak in the surrounding culture.

For some, the total cost of our destination trainings can be tax deductible! Continuing education credits are available for counselors, social workers, marriage and family therapists, substance abuse counselors, psychologists, psychiatrists, nurses, and other mental health professionals.
