Regional Networks are open to all clinicians and researchers who have completed at least part of an EMDRIA Approved Basic EMDR Training. Status as a current EMDRIA member is not required in order to attend a Regional Network Meeting.
Regional Networks hold meetings that take place one or more times per year. They may cover a wide variety of formats and content, such as lectures, research updates, case studies or presentations, clinical applications, special populations, special topic panels and presentations of workshops from the annual EMDRIA conference. EMDRIA suggests that Regional Coordinators act in response to the region’s needs based on feedback received from meeting attendees.
Regional Networks hold meetings that are conducted as nonprofit events. Attendees should only be charged fees to cover the expense of administering and operating each meeting.
Regional Networks should use the designated title for their area, for example "Southeast Nebraska EMDRIA Regional Network."
All Regional Network presentations must be consistent with EMDRIA’s definition of EMDR. If you have questions about whether a particular program is appropriate, please contact EMDRIA with your questions.
