EMDR International Association (EMDRIA): This professional association of EMDR clinicians was founded in 1995 and sets standards for EMDR training, clinical status, research and public education. It also supports special interest groups (SIGs) within the EMDR clinical community to explore new or specialized issues. EMDRIA holds a yearly annual conference where new applications and research findings are presented to an International audience.

EMDR Institute: The EMDR Institute, the oldest and largest EMDRIA approved training organization, was founded by Francine Shapiro, the developer of EMDR as a psychotherapy. The EMDR Institute’s model for Part I and Part II EMDR training is the same model used by Trauma Recovery/HAP. The Institute also cooperates with Trauma Recovery/HAP by listing our participants in its register of EMDR trained therapists and by welcoming HAP trained participants to its internet discussion list. Most of the trainers and facilitators who have supported HAP’s evolution have been Institute trainers and facilitators.
The EMDR Institute website, www.emdr.com, is an excellent source of information on Part I and Part II training, current EMDR research and for other EMDR related resources. Visitors can also use the site to locate EMDR clinicians by location and by specialty area.
