Outgoing President of the EMDR Association UK Mike O’ Connor was interviewed for a podcast at the start of his presidency two years ago. He talks about where his work as an EMDR therapist began. It was through an event which shook the world, the Dunblane Massacre, the 26th anniversary of which is today (13th March). Research to emerge from the tragedy showed the prevalence of trauma and loss in children, and how important it is to work with them at an early stage, discoveries which have changed working practice.
Mike also discusses his vision for EMDR UK, the challenges of Covid-19 and delivering EMDR therapy online.
