8 Phases Resources

The eight phases of EMDR therapy provide a framework for understanding the treatment process. They act as a map for the EMDR therapist to follow. The names of the eight phases describe what happens during each phase, and each phase focuses on a particular aspect of treatment. All eight phases contribute to the overall effect of EMDR therapy. However, not all phases may be used in one EMDR therapy session.

Tools include a Review of 8 Phases video and infographics in English and Spanish.

EMDR Therapy Early Intervention

EMDRIA recognizes ongoing trauma that so many in the world are facing including fires, earthquakes, political and personal violence, and personal loss.

To support those who are treating people with these difficulties and to further efforts to prevent long-term trauma that occurs as a result of these disasters, we are making publicly available Dr. Amanda Roberts' article from the EMDR Early Intervention (EEI) issue of the Go With That magazine (Vol 23, Issue 3 from September 2018). We've included some resource lists for these interventions to complement Dr. Roberts' article.
