EMDRIA Regional Network

The Greater Kansas City EMDRIA Regional Network (EMDRGKC) supports continued learning and skill development in the application of EMDR Therapy. It also facilitates the exchange of innovations that emerge from the EMDR community nationally and internationally to local members. 

To be a member of the Greater Kansas City EMDRIA Regional Network, you are not required to be an EMDRIA member, nor are you required to join EMDRIA. It is expected, however, that you have completed at least part of an EMDRIA Approved Basic EMDR Training.  There is no charge for membership.  To join and be added to the emailing list for the Greater Kansas City EMDRIA Network, contact us.

EMDRGKC Regional Workshops

Each year in June and November, the Greater Kansas City EMDRIA Regional Network hosts a regional workshop.  During these workshops, participants have an opportunity to network with other EMDR trained therapists and to participate in up-to-date EMDR workshops to enhance their clinical practice.  To join and be added to the emailing list to receive notices about events, contact us.

EMDR Study Group

EMDR therapy has a steep learning curve, so therapists often need support and encouragement to gain professional confidence and mastery of EMDR clinical skills. They often benefit from conferring with experienced trauma therapists about standard and innovative approaches with challenging clients.  For this reason, a FREE monthly EMDR Study Group for any mental health professional who has completed at least part of an EMDRIA Approved Basic EMDR Training is available:
