EMDR for workplace trauma


The Industrial use of EMDR requires an understanding of the subtleties of multi-relationship working, it is not just about clinical change, but about commerce, efficiency and secondary agendas - and there are frequently dilemmas....This paper aims to solve some of the issues that arise when an EMDR clinician leaves the relative 'protection' of the NHS and uses EMDR in the 'real world' of commerce and industry. As such, this paper extends some of the principles discussed in the original paper: 'EMDR and the Workplace...helpful hints for the practitioner. The author starts by pointing our that Industry is not psychologically minded and that others' perceptions and agendas may be at odds with 'purest clinical objectives.' When using EMDR, this means modifying and stressing certain parts of the basic EMDR protocol. The remainder of the paper goes through the EMDR phases and identifies each change.
