About EMDR Singapore
EMDR Singapore is the national association for EMDR Therapy. Set up in 2010, the association aims to promote and advocate for the broader inclusion of this therapeutic approach in the local mental health field.

EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing, developed by Dr Francine Shapiro since 1987 (ref: www.emdr.com).

The association is dedicated to seek the highest standard for the clinical use of EMDR therapy by supporting EMDR practitioners through organising quality trainings, providing professional certification, as well as by facilitating peer-learning groups to foster sharing of best practices among practitioners. We also hope to encourage efforts in research of EMDR.
In addition, we seek to advocate for the inclusion of the EMDR therapy in the mental health field by educating mental health professionals on this widely researched and highly useful psychotherapeutic tool. We also desire to enhance public awareness of EMDR’s treatment efficacy through providing information and education about the therapy.
