EMDR déjà vu
The letter from Dr. Thomson in Nova Scotia (the Behavior Therapist, Vol. 16, No. 4, pp. 113-114) addresses some interesting issues. First of all, let me say that I sympathize with his travel problem. The Australians called it the "tyranny of distance." Therefore, after a half dozen clinicians flew into the US to be trained, they coordinated a series of workshops in Australia later that year. During that first trip to Australia we trained almost 500 clinicians in EMDR, and another 350 clinicians six months later. The simple message here is "coordinate it and we will come." The larger issue, however, remains client safety and the consequent need for quality control.
