Certified Versus Non Certified in EMDR

There are differences between an EMDR trained therapist and a therapist who is certified in EMDR. Any therapist with the proper training can technically practice EMDR, however a certified EMDR therapist has been extensively supervised and received advanced training in the practice of EMDR through seminars, lectures, and supervised therapy sessions.

So why is this important information to know when you are looking to start EMDR with a trained therapist? EMDR is a highly effective treatment modality for PTSD and trauma – in the hands of the right clinician.

There have been numerous research studies outlining the effectiveness of EMDR in the treatment of PTSD. However, it is important to work with a highly trained and ethical clinician who is able to support you in this emotional process. EMDR certification ensures that the therapist or clinician using EMDR has demonstrated additional competency and has completed a higher level of training in their specialty.
