   This training program was developed to enhance the quality of treatmenovided to
   military, veterans and their families.  After listening to new clients report they were previously
   treated in EMDR therapy and it didn't work, Dr. Hurley developed this program to improve EMDR
   clinicians' effectiveness.  In fact, Hurley states he has never had a case when EMDR therapy did not
   work when the EMDR therapist was faithful to the protocol and selected clients in accordance with
   the standard EMDR selection criteria. 


   Participants in the Certificate program participate in a two-hour monthly clinic for 12 months with Dr. Hurley  
   and other EMDRIA Approved Consultants who are seasoned in treating military and veteran populations. 
   This will include review of the staff video cases and participant's written case studies.  The final session will
   include and evaluation in which participants are presented cases and asked to identify possible treatment
   options using the EMDR protocol.

   COMPETENCY: the EMDR Military/Veteran Specialist designation requires the participating therapist
   demonstrate an advanced level of clinical competency for completion of the program.  Selection
   into the program recognizes the participant has both potential and motivation for achieving
   advanced clinical status.  Development of clinical competency is not based on a specific number of
   consultation hours but the ability to demonstrate advanced levels of clinical competency.
