EMDRAA Conference 2024

Event description

On behalf of the organising committee of the EMDR Association of Australia, we invite you to join us for the EMDRAA 2024 Conference - 'EMDR Beyond PTSD - A Transdiagnostic & Integrative Psychotherapy' at Sofitel Gold Coast Broadbeach, Queensland. 

The annual EMDRAA conference is quickly becoming a highly anticipated event of the year; a renowned platform for delivering expert content across all areas of EMDR therapy.

Join us for an immersive exploration showcasing its diverse applications beyond PTSD. This conference delves into integrating EMDR with various therapies and welcomes experts in polyvagal theory, memory reconsolidation, neurodiversity, child populations, and more.

Discover real-life case studies showcasing EMDR’s effectiveness in treating anxiety, depression, OCD, addictions, chronic pain, and even conditions like long COVID. Learn how this integrative approach extends beyond single-event traumas to transform therapy across the lifespan. Let’s elevate our understanding of EMDR as an integrative, transdiagnostic psychotherapy.
