Add joy, hope and optimism to your clinical practice. Exceptional treatment outcomes are not unusual. Look forward to going to work every day -- reduce the possibility of compassion fatigue.

 

WHAT IS EMDR?

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a best-practice, evidence-based psychotherapy approved by international health and government regulatory bodies throughout the world. EMDR effectively and efficiently eliminates the symptoms of stress and trauma. It is highly-rated for its efficacy with ASD & PTSD by (among many others):

  • The World Health Organization (2013)
  • The American Psychiatric Association (2004 & 2009)
  • The US Department of Defense/Veterans Affairs (2004 & 2010)
  • The International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies (2000 & 2008)

EXCITING NEWS FOR CANADIAN CITIZENS…

Since 2011, the Ontario Ministry of Health and The Canadian Department of Defense have provided funding for EMDR training for programs delivered by the NSTC:

  • The Sexual Assault/Domestic Violence Treatment Centres in Ontario hospitals have had 36 staff members trained,
  • The Primary Health Care Services of Peterborough (a network of Family Health Teams servicing 113,000 patients in that city) also commissioned a Ministry-funded EMDR training.
