Southern Maine EMDRIA Regional Network is pleased to have a history of providing the opportunity for area clinicians to come together as a community of EMDR providers as we share notifications of advances in the field of EMDR (through EMDRIA updates) as well as educational and networking opportunities. It is our goal to deliver training which has been approved for EMDRIA CEUs in order to ensure quality education and to enable clinicians interested in EMDRIA certification to access affordable training which meets the requirement for continuing education units.


The Southern Maine EMDRIA Regional Network is managed by a committee of volunteers who are practitioners of EMDR.
