The EMDR UK annual conference (15th to 16th March 2024 York) is rapidly approaching.

It will be a wonderful opportunity to visit this historically interesting and cultural city known for the iconic York Minster and architecture from medieval times, its magnificent Georgian town houses, and the Victorian railway station. There is much to be gained professionally and socially from attending the conference.

When planning the programme, we are informed by members expressed interests and have commissioned a full programme of international and nationally renowned presenters who will inspire and enrich our knowledge and clinical skills. We have a full two days showcasing current research in EMDR and continuing the theme of working with specific client groups.

Our patron Sir Terry Waite will give an address featuring his work for the release and rehabilitation of hostages. We have clinical workshops and a reinstated Child and Adolescent stream. We are particularly delighted that our main presenter on Friday is Femke Bannink Mbazzi who will be running a major two-part workshop addressing culture and cultural adaptations in EMDR treatment; and on Saturday Ludwig Cornil and Olivier Van Limbergen will present a workshop on treating relational trauma with EMDR.

We are also delighted that we will be re-introducing poster presentations this year. The deadline for abstracts for posters is 31 December 2023.  Please contact the Association research officer if you would like further information. 

It is now established that EMDR UK conferences are hybrid; this offers greater choice and flexibility to meet the needs of Association members and it reduces the global footprint of national association events. A large venue has been chosen in York, with numbers capped to ensure a spacious environment for delegates and exhibitors; book early if you wish to attend in person. For those further away you may choose to attend via our professionally managed online platform which will enable live participation throughout the conference.

12 EMDR CPD credits will be awarded for the full conference.  The conference will be recorded and available for registered delegates to view for up to 28 days post conference.

The EMDR Association has committed to planting five trees for every delegate registered and you will also have the opportunity to participate in this carbon reduction initiative at the point of registration.
