EMDR is not only an evidence-based approach for PTSD, but it’s also been shown to be extremely helpful in the treatment of some anxiety disorders. This 9.75-CE home study course introduces participants to the original 8-phase model of EMDR, and provides instructions for how to utilize EMDR skills to treat generalized anxiety, phobias, and panic.
