It has been my passionate mission (many EMDR therapists could make the same claim) to help Spread the Word about EMDR. I did an informal survey at the 2007 EMDRIA Conference in Dallas and found that EMDR Therapists estimated that the public knowledge level about EMDR in their home communities ranged from 5 to 15%. But when I asked how many knew about the prestigious organizations that accept EMDR for the treatment of PTSD, the results were positively dismal: 1% across the board.
This depressing news has goaded me to make more and more efforts to increase the statistics to match EMDR’s success level: 80-90%. Actually I am aiming for 80% because it seems attainable. The past year I worked hard to boost my marketing knowledge. Why? I am convinced we need new techniques to accomplish this worthy goal. This year that knowledge is coming to fruition in this newsletter.
It is culled from the blogs posted at:
Please check it out as blogs are collecting there. EMDR clients share their stories in a confidential way. I think their sincerity is powerful, and will inspire others to forward the stories, helping to spread the word.
I invite you tol help in this process. Please check out the blog, and if you wish, encourage your enthusiastic EMDR client to share his story with others who could get inspired to take action…to get EMDR for themselves.
