EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) is increasingly acknowledged (ISTSS, NICE, WHO) as a powerful psychotherapeutic treatment approach for clients living with the traumatic aftermath of adverse life experiences. With the adoption in the ICD-11 of new diagnoses embracing Complex as well as single-episode PTSD, EMDR is proving effective in addressing both specific-incident adult trauma (rape, war, RTAs, natural disaster etc) and also the deeper, more complex impact of attachment-informed developmental dysfunction from childhood.

Full Course Information
The present and unprecedented planetary health emergency presented by COVID-19, and consequent restrictions on in-person meetings of all kinds, are challenging our long-held reservations in mental health professions towards the provision of psychotherapy and counselling remotely and online. At this practical seminar, the speakers highlight the efficacy levels that can be achieved when delivering EMDR therapy through online sessions; while helping us navigate the constraints offered by this format of therapeutic engagement.
They will explore both practical and relational best practices which are now widely available for delivery of EMDR online. Specifically, the seminar will:
- coach seminar participants in the best use of technology, ranging from computer setup and best online platforms for this work
- explain how we can connect remotely with clients in such a way that a warm and contained therapeutic space is available for safe EMDR delivery
- highlight how best to deliver the sensory bilateral stimulation which is central to EMDR work
- discuss the latest guidance being provided by a number of international EMDR bodies across UK, USA and Australia
- Define emerging best practice in the delivery of EMDR online
- Demonstrate appropriate technology and environment to ensure safe and effective client experience of EMDR online
- Review considerations and approaches to creating a safe therapeutic container for online EMDR
- Outline distinctive considerations for remote EMDR, including case conceptualisation, session focus and structure
