​​If more therapists were trained in and utilized EMDR the reasons that clients avoid therapy would decrease and positive associations with therapy would increase.

EMDR Empowerment is committed to actively increasing the mental health community's exposure to, understanding of and use of EMDR in work with clients. The most effective way to do this is by creating opportunities for therapists, interns and students to be trained in and experience EMDR themselves.

For Students:

Start planning for your future practice. Find out the benefits of being an EMDR therapist so that you are one step ahead in building your practice when you get licensed.

Additionally, most graduate programs require or encourage students to participate in therapy. Why not complete those hours doing EMDR so that you get the most optimal results and are prepared to be an effective therapist? Check with the Board of Behavioral Sciences (BBS) to see if your field of study allows you to count hours in therapy towards hours for licensure.
