EMDR Europe accreditation session


Over the last number of years EMDR Europe has developed a Competency Based Framework for EMDR clinicians seeking accreditation as either an EMDR Europe Practitioner or Consultant. The rationale behind this initiative is that EMDR Europe wanted to standardise the requirement for accreditation across all member nations as part of EMDR Europe. These new competency frameworks have made a significant contribution in achieving this. The need to enhance the importance of accreditation within EMDR is extremely important in terms of treatment fidelity, future research and development, and quality assurance. The purpose of this session is twofold; firstly to explore the key attributes of each of these EMDR Europe competencies based frameworks and explain how the accreditation process works within EMDR UK & Ireland. Secondly, a question and answer aspect focussing upon individual aspects to address people’s specific issues, concerns or queries EMDR clinicians may have in relation to EMDR Europe accreditation either as a practitioner or consultant.
