Working to progress the standing of EMDR therapy

The EMDR Association of Australia (EMDRAA) is a professional association where EMDR practitioners and researchers set standards for the clinical use of EMDR therapy for its members. EMDR is designated as an effective treatment by the World Health Organization (WHO), the Australian Phoenix Australia – Centre for Post-traumatic Mental Health, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and Department of Defense, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and many other international health agencies. This powerful psychotherapy approach has helped over an estimated two million people of all ages relieve many types of psychological distress. This website provides information to the greater EMDR community including clinicians, researchers, and the public that our members serve.

Dear EMDRAA members.

We have proceeded with our arrangements for the annual EMDRAA workshop as planned for November, and present the flyer for the event here.

However, we are delaying opening up registrations at this stage, whilst we closely monitor the Covid-19 situation and wait for further advice from health authorities going forward.

The health and safety of our members and presenters is of utmost importance to us and we will proceed with our event only if is safe to do so.

Please see this space for any further developments and updates.
