Regional Coordinator Application and Guidelines
Regional Coordinator Guidelines
EMDRIA Regional Coordinators are the
backbone of the EMDRIA network across the United States. Regional
Coordinators are EMDRIA Certified Therapists who locally organize
meetings to bring EMDR practitioners together to share information and
ideas relating to EMDR. This is a unique opportunity to get to know the
EMDR practitioners in your area and develop a network among them.
Regional Networks create opportunities
to present your ideas about implementing EMDR, while encouraging others
to do the same. Because EMDR has a steep learning curve, clinicians
need support and encouragement to stay with the process. And they need
to talk with other therapists about their cases, both successes and
failures. A Regional Coordinator is the person who makes this happen. Active status as an EMDRIA Certified Therapist is required in order to become a Regional
Regional Networks vary in size and make
available diverse activities such as special presentations, case studies
or presentations, discussions of clinical applications, lectures,
research updates, special populations, group discussions, practicum
experiences, special topic panels, EMDRIA updates, etc. Regional
Meetings may also be an opportunity to earn EMDRIA Credits which are
required for status as an EMDRIA Certified Therapist and Approved
Consultant in EMDR.
Regional Networks are conducted as
nonprofit events. Any donations or fees requested to attend any meetings
are strictly for the cost of the meeting only. Regional Coordinators do
not make a personal profit from these meetings nor are these meetings a
fundraiser for EMDRIA in any way.
Participants at the Regional Networks
are not required to be an EMDRIA member, nor are they required to join
EMDRIA. It is expected, however, that participants have completed at least part of an EMDRIA Approved Basic EMDR Training.
If you have any questions regarding Regional Networks, please contact your area's Regional Coordinator or the EMDRIA Administrative Office. If there is not an EMDRIA Regional Network in your area, and you are interested in becoming an EMDRIA Regional Coordinator or helping to establish a network, please contact Sara Sturtevant.
We look forward to serving you!
