Who can apply for CPD credits?

Accredited EMDR Association UK Trainers, Clinical Supervisors / Consultants, and Practitioners can apply for the credits. Their event may include contributions made by clinicians still working towards accreditation.

What information does the Association need?

  • Title, date, and location of the event.
  • Presenters’/speakers’ details, including the level they are trained to, and their accreditation status.
  • Details of the aims and learning outcomes related to EMDR, the teaching methodology, and content.
  • How the event aims to develop EMDR practice.
  • Percentage of the session focused on EMDR (to qualify for CPD credits, at least 50 per cent of the session needs to be spent focused on EMDR).
  • An indication of your target audience. People attending CPD events should be trained at least to Level 1 of standard training.

How many CPD credits can I ask for?

A full-day event can earn a maximum of six CPD credits.

Can support or supervision groups be awarded CPD credits?

No, support or supervision groups are not eligible for CPD credits.

What happens after I’ve applied?

The Accreditation Committee will consider all applications by email or at a committee meeting. You will be notified of the Committee’s decision by email.

If your application is successful, you may then include the EMDR Europe logo and the number of CPD credits awarded on your event’s documentation.

Events awarded CPD credits must be evaluated by participants in writing and a summary of the evaluations submitted to the Accreditation Committee representative.

Repeat events will be awarded CPD credits only on receipt of satisfactory evaluations from the previous event.
