  1. Wow! This is one of the things EMDRIA does best, spreading the word to the key associations
    who have the power to influence many. Congratulations again, on all your efforts. Simply
    these kinds of accomplishments (such as the persistent efforts to get Tricare to approve EMDR)
    are reason enough to be an EMDRIA member, if you did nothing else.

    But then, you do so much more. All dedicated EMDR therapists should be members of EMDRIA.
    In San Diego we do all we can to encourage membership and becoming EMDRIA Certified, as well.
