Ethical issues for EMDR clinicians, consultants, trainers, and researchers

Description

EMDR, as a psychotherapy, encounters numerous opportunities for issues of an ethical nature. But there are two additional areas that emphasize the need for a clear understanding of ethical conduct for EMDR clinicians, consultants, trainers, and researchers. The first area is the unique quality of EMDR work. Unlike other psychotherapies, to use an example, EMDR therapy may be conducted without the therapist knowing the specifics of the client’s particular experience. The second area is one that is extremely practical in its impact: though EMDR practitioners represent a variety of mental health disciplines, their professional organization, EMDRIA, largely has adopted the ethical code of the American Psychological Association, a code some may not have particular familiarity with. This workshop provides didactic instruction, case discussion, and small group exercises to explore the ethical issues relating to the use of EMDR.
