Course content

Eye Movement Desensitisation & Reprocessing (EMDR) is an evidence-based, empirically supported psychotherapy for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), psychological trauma and other and other mental health conditions. The University of Worcester is the first academic institution in the world to offer an MSc EMDR Therapy programme of study in EMDR psychotherapy. This programme is validated by EMDR Europe and contains full EMDR Europe Training, along with a suite of other modules. This unique, groundbreaking course enables current mental health practitioners to further develop their conceptual and theoretical understanding in the field of psychological trauma and EMDR.

The MSc in EMDR is accredited by EMDR Europe both for the trainer and the training. As an EMDR Europe Accredited Trainer we have developed EMDR academic trainings in other academic institutions both nationally and internationally. Some of our EMDR Trainings have been undertaken as part of humanitarian assistance programmes in Pakistan, Poland, Indonesia, Thailand, Greece and Palestine. We have also carried out EMDR training for the Ministry of Defence, IAPT NHS services, and Charitable Organisations.
