EMDRIA SIG Program Overview

ATTENTION: Proposed SIGs are currently on hold. You may still submit an application, but it will not be advertised to the membership at this time. Thank you!


EMDR International Association (EMDRIA) is a membership organization of mental health professionals dedicated to the highest standards of excellence and integrity in EMDR.

EMDRIA’s purposes are to …

  1. Establish and uphold standards of practice, training, certification, and research

  2. Provide information, education, and advocacy

  3. Assist practitioners in fulfilling their responsibilities to the public.

The basic purpose of EMDRIA’s Special Interest Group (“SIG”) Program is to form and maintain forums for open, regular communication among professionals sharing an interest in a particular area of the field and consistent with the objectives of EMDRIA.  EMDRIA’s intent is to facilitate the creation and continuation of SIGs that provide EMDRIA members support for development of knowledge areas of special interest and experience support of their professional practices via communication forums.


SIGs may be proposed and focused around any professional theme: specific target problems, populations or settings, theoretical orientations, professional categories or concerns and/or employment settings.  The name of the SIG should designate its focal issue.  SIGs are created and dissolved as particular interests increase or decrease in importance to the membership of the Association.  The SIG Program is designed to be flexible, and thus quickly respond to new, emerging developments in the field.
