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.

The EMDR Association of Australia (EMDRAA) 2021 Conference: Building Better Lives focuses on using EMDR Therapy to help people who are dealing with unprecedented stress due to COVID as well as children, as they are often silent victims when disaster occurs.

This year’s program will be entirely online featuring a mixture of live workshops, prerecorded presentations and information sessions. For the week preceding the conference, you will receive a menu of learning opportunities. While recordings will be available after the conference for several months, we recommend viewing recordings ahead of the conference for the best conference experience.

On the conference weekend, October 30 -31, we will have keynote presentations from Ana Gomez discussing a ground-breaking approach to working with families where there is a history of violence or aggression and Dr Chris Lee sharing the current status of EMDR internationally and future directions.

Please REGISTER NOW to avoid disappointment. Early Bird tickets end 24 September 2021.
