The EMDR Europe conference taking place in Milan has been organized in a very stimulating context, since it will be done jointly with the 14th European Congress of Psychology (EFPA), during the EXPO 2015 events. That’s why its theme “Changing links, changing minds, changing lives” is going to give a strong message of the action of EMDR therapy and its function in the process of change and transformation of our clients’ lives.
We will have 20 workshops on the new and complex fields of EMDR therapy in the broad domain of clinical practice. Plenary sessions on EMDR research will be giving concrete guidelines for clinicians working with trauma and severe mental disorders. We will have a Joint Day with the European Federation of Psychological Associations (EFPA), that gathers 300.000 psychologists in Europe and we will be sharing with them EMDR therapy research and applications doing their congress in the Joint day, that will take place on Friday. Their theme is “Linking technology and psychology: feeding the mind, energy for life”.
Milan will be the city of EXPO from May to October 2015. Our conference will take place in the heart of the programs of the Universal Exposition, so it will be a great opportunity to explore this extraordinary event that will bring people from all over the world together… The theme of the EXPO is “Feeding the planet, energy for life”. The Milan EMDR Europe conference will give a special contribution to the enhancement and development of EMDR within the Psychology world and in the general European agencies and networks.
President, EMDR Italy
Welcome to the 16th EMDR Europe Conference taking place in Milan.
The conference will provide its participants with some of the best presenters and workshop leaders in the world of EMDR.
The workshop topics will cover areas that are of great interest to every EMDR therapist, and looking at the program I know you will face the same difficulty I am facing: how to choose between all the fascinating possibilities. It is clearly one of the best programs of an EMDR workshop conference that I have seen in my many years of attending EMDR conferences.
One of the special aspects of this conference will be the fact that it will partially overlap with the 14th European Congress of Psychology. This is a unique opportunity for EMDR Europe members who are interested in combining participation in both conferences.
Milan, one of the most beautiful cities in Italy, will also be hosting the EXPO during the summer of 2015, and thus provide another good reason to visit the city.
I am sure that the combination of all of these will give the participants an enriching experience that will be remembered, even when the taste of the Chianti and Pasta will be gone.
Very much looking forward to seeing you in Milan.
