REMDR
The new frontier in EMDR Therapy

COVID-19 SPECIAL UPDATE

Attention all EMDR Therapists – REMDR will assist you to maintain Business Continuity in your practice as the world learns how to deal with this pandemic.

REMDR can assist in reducing the impact of these concerns, as it provides you with the ability to deliver remote EMDR Therapy to your clients, no matter where you are in the world, providing you with the ultimate way to continue providing effective services to your clients while maintaining social distance.

You will never again need to lose income due to a sick client, or their inability to attend in person for their appointment. You can maintain your business whilst keeping yourself safe and supporting your clients to remain healthy.

You will also require some form of video-conferencing software to work with REMDR. We offer a ‘bundle’ package with PsychNEXUS – our HIPAA compliant, encrypted and secure platform.

WE HAVE JUST RELEASED OUR NEW WEB VERSION OF REMDR

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the development of our new web version of REMDR has been fast-tracked. We have some functionality in the development pipeline that will be added over the coming weeks, but it is an extremely functional system as it is.

Whilst technology can never replace face-to-face treatment, it can offer increased choice and flexibility to clients and practitioners alike.

An Important Message From Our Founder

EMDR Consultant Kerry Howard

Dear Colleague

I have come under some criticism in recent days for not providing 'free' access to our REMDR platform, given the circumstances of COVID-19.  Some colleagues voiced their views that I am just trying to make money out of a really bad situation - but it's simply not true.

I currently have a small team working very long hours trying to code improvements to our system.  These improvements will help you continue to treat your clients with the most effective and user-friendly system possible.  REMDR was built and funded by me, as an EMDR Consultant, from scratch.

REMDR was launched at the EMDRIA conference in the USA in August 2017.  The feedback was very positive and many considered it unique and innovative.  However, most therapists prefer to see clients face-to-face, so this didn’t translate into any tangible demand.  I was undeterred as I have been driven to provide an effective system for EMDR Therapy to be delivered remotely, primarily to support our own services.

We simply haven’t had the capability to offer REMDR for free until now, due to the 'manual' processing that is required to add users to our system.  We had to address our obligations to make it safe and secure.  IT development is slow and very costly.  It will be patently obvious that there are no other platforms of this standard available anywhere in the world.  I am committed to helping EMDR Therapists around the globe now, and into the future.

PsychNEXUS is our HIPAA compliant platform within Zoom.  It costs me several hundred USD annually (up front paid to Zoom) for me to add you to PsychNEXUS, due to the HIPAA obligations.  This is why it can take up to 24 hours for you to gain access to the system.  We have a 'head Agreement' with Zoom and we allow you to access our HIPAA compliant version.  This was the MOST cost effective way I could find to enable individual therapists to gain access to a HIPAA compliant platform and we have been working this way, in partnership with Zoom, since 2017.  You can gain access to your own HIPAA compliant Zoom account starting from $200USD per month - see Zoom Healthcare pricing for yourself if you like.

This morning (Sunday) we have worked out a way to give you access to our PsychNEXUS account for FREE.  Please note, this is not HIPAA compliant at this level and it will only allow you to be on a call for 40 minutes maximum - but it will allow you to fully 'test' REMDR with the video conferencing system it was built for, if you do not have your own Zoom account.

Alternatively, if you are already using a Zoom account, you will be able to utilise the Free Trial of REMDR via the share screen functionality within Zoom.  We hope to be able to offer the Free Trial in the next few days.

I WANT TO SUPPORT OUR INTERNATIONAL EMDR COMMUNITY

I will be running free 'group' EMDR Consultation sessions online through PsychNEXUS starting this week for anyone who needs support or instruction about how to work effectively online.  Details will be posted here on the website shortly.  I have given a lot of my time over the past week to EMDR Therapists all around the world, to try and resolve this issue and it has all been for free.

My primary goal is to help EMDR Therapists to help people.  PsychNEXUS is a business which provides a platform.  In these very challenging times, the business is doing its best to provide a cost-effective service to EMDR Therapists.

Anyone who has worked with me would tell you that I am not in this to profit from these unprecedented global circumstances.  I have been developing REMDR for three years and I will continue to improve our systems well past this pandemic.  I continue to be extremely generous with my time and energy as I merely want to help everyone to be able to deliver effective therapy online.

Sincerely

Kerry

REMDR has increased my flexibility in delivering EMDR therapy to clients in more ways than just being able to treat clients online – which is an enormous leap forward in itself.

With the array of devices and data speeds out there, plus of course countless individual client preferences, REMDR’s versatility and options in setting BLS rate, colour and size gives me real choice that I can demonstrate to a client and quickly overcome any concerns they might have about receiving EMDR on whatever screen they have.

Even clients with challenges like diminished eyesight or who experience retinal fatigue, even migraine, can quickly be accommodated by making easy adjustments upfront, or even between cycles.  It’s so easy to use, stable, and highly adaptable, it leaves more mainstream non-hand delivery systems in its wake.

Would you like greater flexibility in how you deliver your services?

Have you ever thought about relocating, but were concerned about the impact on your practice and building a new referral base?

REMDR can assist in reducing the impact of these concerns, as it provides you with the ability to apply remote services to your clients, no matter where you are in the world, providing you with the ultimate lifestyle flexibility.

You will never again need to lose income due to a sick client, or their inability to leave work or other commitments to travel to their appointment.

Never lose a client to relocation, as they can still access your therapeutic support remotely as they require.

Smartphones, tablets and computers are expanding the availability of health services. Whilst technology can never replace face to face treatment, it can offer increased choice and flexibility to clients and practitioners alike.

REMDR
Administered Locally…
Effective Globally

REMDR is a digital platform that is designed to allow EMDR therapists to deliver EMDR treatment in the office, from home, or anywhere in the world

  • REMDR has been designed for optimal digital flexibility.  It can be used via basic screen-sharing in your office (replacing a light bar), or using telehealth via a video-conferencing platform like PsychNEXUS, giving you ultimate flexibility.  This allows the client to benefit from the versatility of REMDR with the therapist face-to-face, or via live video connection rather than in person.
  • REMDR offers therapists more choices and greater flexibility in how clients can access your therapy to help in their continued treatment for trauma.
  • REMDR can also be used to supplement face-to-face care.  A client may utilise a combination of modalities during their treatment as their needs change, incorporating both face-to-face and remote video-conferencing sessions.
  • The global delivery potential of REMDR allows your therapeutic skills to expand beyond all possibilities.

The new frontier in EMDR Therapy

REMDR is a pioneering electronic platform allowing therapists to:

  • Directly observe eye movement without distraction
  • Vary colour, speed and intensity with optional audio overlay
  • Vary direction and provides the addition of remote bilateral vibration
  • Maintain Business Continuity for your practice regardless of health issues or location

With REMDR, therapists may facilitate EMDR Therapy locally, around the world.

How Effective Is REMDR?

There is strong evidence that psychological therapy can be delivered effectively through online treatment, including EMDR.

In some research trials, online therapy has been found to be as effective in reducing symptoms as therapy delivered face-to-face by a clinician.  Evidence is particularly strong that anxiety, stress and depression can be treated online.

Research has also shown that online therapy, including video conferencing, allows the client to maintain and build a satisfactory rapport with their therapist, the same way they would through face to face treatment.

Is there anyone REMDR is not suited to?

REMDR is not for everyone. While some people love the idea of online therapy and the potential it brings, others still prefer to have an in-person approach with their therapist.

Some clients may not feel confident in using new technology and trying to navigate a new program may cause some distress.  With the sliding adaptability of the REMDR platform, you can assist your clients to overcome any anxiety by working with your clients to understand the program in person first.  You can use this technology in place of a light bar in your office, this familiarises your clients to the system.  This will allow the client to feel comfortable with the technology and how you will be using it before commencing online treatment.

REMDR or other online treatment is not recommended for severe forms of mental illness, such as psychosis.  However, technology is slowly progressing to utilise technological approaches to treatment of severe mental illness.  Generally, online approaches to treatment are less suitable for people experiencing immediate crisis.

The use of REMDR to treat clients remotely has shown to be just as effective as the face-to-face therapeutic outcomes of EMDR therapy.  Further research is currently being undertaken to validate this hypothesis, however the recent COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in the need to adopt the use of technology immediately.

How Secure Is REMDR?

When using REMDR , it is the most secure to use your personal office Wi-Fi network.  This allows you to have the most control over who has access during the REMDR session.

Once you start to deliver online therapy sessions, there are many things regarding client security you will need to consider.  Depending on which country you practice within, there may also be criteria you are required to meet.  With our partners at PsychNEXUS, you no longer need to be concerned about meeting these requirements.

PsychNEXUS provides REMDR clients with a HIPAA compliant platform that is easily utilised to deliver online EMDR therapy through video conferencing.  Whilst there are several programs available for video conferencing with clients, these do not all provide a fully secure system, that also meets your professional obligations and requirements regarding client confidentiality.

In many countries, therapists are utilising Skype, FaceTime or even Facebook Messenger to deliver online therapy.  However, it is important to note that whilst there are many 'FREE' services that provide a cost-effective and convenient way to deliver this service, they do not provide the appropriate encryption required to provide a secure environment for your clients therapy session.  In most cases, choosing a HIPAA compliant platform (such as PsychNEXUS ) will assist you to minimise the security risks when treating your clients remotely.  Through our partnership with PsychNEXUS , you can access a HIPAA compliant platform as an individual therapist at a cost-effective price.
