Enhancing EMDR clinical supervision skills for EMDR accredited consultants


In the last 20 years EMDR has progressed from that of a technique to a psychotherapeutic method. Yet the format of EMDR trainings remains fairly short in duration. This workshop will outline some of the research findings from a Delphi study that were carried out with an international group of EMDR Consultants which explored four areas: 1. EMDR Protocol 2. Teaching & Learning of EMDR 3. EMDR Research & Development 4. Professional Standing of EMDR The implications of the research findings will be discussed in relation to ‘core characteristics’ of the EMDR Consultant and will utilise a model of clinical supervision as a framework for ascertaining EMDR clinical skills and competency. Learning objectives: • Critically consider the current teaching and learning of EMDR • Integrate the core aspects from a Delphi study which explores aspects around EMDR practice, development and clinical governance • Evaluate the key components of EMDR Consultants with particular reference to EMDR clinical supervision and Consultation
