EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) has grown faster than any other form of psychotherapy.
It has helped hundreds of thousands of people reduce the intensity of their distress.
EMDR was originally developed to treat Post-Traumatic Disorder (PTSD).
Then therapists and patients found that it is often effective in alleviating the symptoms of many other psychological conditions and challenges.
Today the infamous Eye Movement Technique is often synthesized with mindfulness practices to create a transformative form of meditation that can reduce stress, induce relaxation, and help cultivate a state of clarity creativity.
EMDR has also remained controversial since its first discovery, because despite numerous theories, nobody knows exactly how or why it works.
This course provides a concise yet comprehensive insight into all aspects of EMDR and its applications, and includes videos for use in your own meditation practice.
Please note that the course:
Does not provide therapy for those with PTSD
Does not provide a clinical training in the application or administering of EMDR
Who this course is for:
- The course is for anyone seeking a comprehensive understanding of EMDR.
I am widely recognized as a leading pioneer of human science and an expert on contemporary approaches to psychology.
For thirty-five years I have studied human nature and experience in an endeavour to understand how we hurt and how we heal.
I have worked as a consultant therapist with those in deep distress, supervised research graduates at universities internationally, trained practitioners from multiple clinical disciplines, and authored text books that remain seminal reading for specialist professionals.
My interest in psychology began as a means to comprehend a traumatising childhood and deepened while navigating a dreadful darkness during my middle years when life seemed to almost slip away.
I therefore know the terrain of our human strengths and vulnerabilities both personally and professionally.
Through my teaching I seek to explain and illustrate the intriguing complexities of human science in a way that is accessible and easy to understand without compromising accuracy.
