Past 10 years and future: Discussing the responses to the questionnaire survey for JEMDRA members
In this article, I review the history of Japan EMDR Association from 2010 to 2015. I also describe results of the Web questionnaire for members of proceeds carried out before the JEMDRA 10th conference). Four hundred nineteen answers were analyzed. Their clinical orientation, the clinical populations they see, and their clinical perspectives seem to be influenced after receiving the EMDR training. However, twenty-five percent of responders do not use EMDR at all. Many responders might face much difficulty using EMDR in their clinical settings. They selected lack of confidence, time restriction and absence of appropriate clients as the reasons for feeling challenged. By analyzing the comments I found that two major obstacles cited by the responders were shortage of trainers or consultants, or difficulties of problems presented by the clients. Regarding treatment fees most responders cited free of charge (28%) or insurance coverage (32%) and others are client (100% coverage. Tasks for JEMDRA for the next 10 years were suggested from the perspectives of basic and clinical research, dissemination, and humanitarian assistance.
