Greater Cincinnati EMDRIA Regional Network (GCERN)

The Greater Cincinnati EMDRIA Regional Network provides EMDR-trained practitioners with a means of bridging the gap between training and practice.  Its purpose is to assist clinicians from all mental health disciplines in introducing and maintaining the transition and incorporation of EMDR into clinical practice.  The primary means of facilitating this transition is to provide a well-structured forum for discussion of the wide range of possible applications of EMDR, clinical cases, and detailed reviews of treatment protocols as well as presentations of specialty topics by invited guests and group participants and updates on clinical and research developments.

The objectives of GCERN are to educate interested participants on the continuing efficacy of EMDR in clinical practice and research and to provide an open forum whereby practitioners can discuss common concerns and issues with respect to the use of EMDR.

The GCERN no fee meetings are usually scheduled to meet Friday from 3 to 5 p.m. at 9900 Carver Road, Suite 101, Cincinnati, Ohio 45242.
