The purpose of the San Francisco-South Bay EMDR Regional Network is to create a supportive local community of EMDR practitioners. Our goal is to support the effective use of EMDR, through encouraging continuing EMDR education and networking among regional EMDR therapists.If you have completed at least Weekend 1 of the EMDR basic training, please contact us to be on our mailing list and to attend future events.
Meetings are held in San Mateo four times a year, typically once every quarter. These events bring EMDR practitioners together to share information and ideas relating to EMDR. The meetings include an educational presentation, networking time as well as a community building component. Both EMDRIA CEUs as well as BBS CEUs are available for most meetings.
Any donations or fees requested to attend any meetings are strictly for the cost of the meeting only. The events are not for profit, and the 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 EMDRIA members, nor are they required to join EMDRIA. It is expected, however, that participants be trained in basic EMDR methods from an EMDRIA approved training and/or be an academician and/or an academic researcher within a related field.
What is EMDRIA?
EMDR International Association (EMDRIA) is a professional association which, among other things, establishes standards of training for EMDR, supports research, and establishes criteria which must be met to achieve status as a Certified EMDR Therapist or an EMDRIA Certified Consultant. EMDRIA in the US sponsors annual four-day international EMDR conferences to help clinicians stay current with knowledge relevant to EMDR, to hone their skills in all phases of EMDR, and to expand their abilities to use EMDR effectively and appropriately with special clinical populations. EMDRIA in other areas of the world, including Canada and Europe organize similar annual conference.
