What is EMDR? (a short brochure I give out)
This (see below images) is a six-page brochure I give to clients. I would call this a good description of what a "Basic Trained" EMDR practitioner can offer. As an EMDRIA Certified Approved Consultant who teaches EMDR Basic Trainings and Certification programs, I have a few more tricks up my sleeve.
Feel free to skip to the brochure below, but I would perhaps give a few simple modifications, to represent what I offer above what is described in the brochure:
My clients rarely experience much emotional disturbance at all when dealing with disturbing material--rarely more than they do day-to-day. I utilize advanced techniques to make this happen.
I use specialized techniques to increase the effectiveness and speed of EMDR
I have special techniques for dealing with therapy-resistant cases, such as cases involving dissociative disorders.
Most of the time I see my clients' disturbance disappear, rather than being "significantly reduced," although significant symptom reduction is not a bad thing at all.
There are now 44 published scientific studies proving EMDR works with trauma, not 20, as stated in this brochure.
There are also studies demonstrating that EMDR is effective with over 27 other issues, for example: depression, chronic pain, addictions, eating disorders, end-of-life issues--even enhancing sports performance.
Here is the brochure:
