Why Pursue Training In EMDR Therapy?

Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy helps people deal with problems caused by traumatic events or difficult situations. It is a well-studied therapy that is effective in treating a variety of issues such as anxiety, depression, phobias, and addiction. This therapy is based on the idea that unresolved memories can cause problems and that by processing these memories, people can improve. EMDR basic training is a way for mental health professionals to learn how to use this therapy with their clients. This training is done in a specific format, which includes lectures, videos, and supervised practice. The goal of the training is to help participants learn how to use the therapy effectively and to gain hands-on experience with it.
