Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
EMDR is a psychotherapy treatment method and therefore should be practiced by a psychiatrist, psychologist, or licensed psychotherapist certified in EMDR. The EMDR Association in the United States and the European EMDR Association in Europe have established strict criteria for the certification process of a clinician. In addition to basic psychotherapy training, the completion of a series of training sessions and supervision by a more experienced therapist are required for certification. The treatment of a single trauma suffered in everyday life (for example, a fire, an act of aggression, or a serious accident) takes generally fewer than 10 sessions. Sessions usually last up to 90 minutes. Fees vary from $60 to $120. The best way to identify an EMDR-certified
psychotherapist in your area is to consult one of the reputable associations below.
EMDR Institute (United States)
EMDR Association of Canada
The European EMDR Association sets standards for the training and practice of EMDR in more than 20 European countries and Israel. It also provides information on practitioners, training seminars, and workshops throughout Europe.
