Approved EMDR Training

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a clinically-proven evidence-based psychological therapy. It is especially effective in the treatment of both PTSD and phantom limb pain and has been endorsed by numerous international organizations and government bodies.

Training in EMDR is offered through the British Columbia School of Professional Psychology (BCSPP), an approved EMDRIA training site. Marshall Wilensky, Ph.D., teaches the current recommended curriculum, which provides a thorough grounding in the use of this therapeutic tool. Though the BCSPP is based out of Vancouver, BC, trainings are offerred throughout British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, the Yukon, and Washington.
