Diversity and Cultural Competence Statement: EMDR Advanced Training and Distance Learning, LLC, seeks to promote educational content and teaching methods that are culturally sensitive. We ascribe to a multiculturally inclusive model of societal and professional diversity and seek to create a learning environment that is welcoming, inclusive and informed by the needs of a culturally diverse assembly of professionals. We affirm social diversity such as but not limited to race/ethnicity, nationality/citizenship, gender/gender identity, sexual/affectional orientation, socio-economic status, religion/spirituality, ability/disability, and/or age.

We affirm and strive for cultural competence as an organization in the educational and training programs that we offer, and we ally with the general movement toward cultural competence in health service provision and education. We believe that all clinical interventions need to be implemented with an awareness of cultural and social identity related factors. Wherever possible, clinical interventions need to be broadly applicable, otherwise adaptable to culturally diverse clinical populations, or specifically intended to meet the needs of identified cultural or clinical populations. We seek and provide programs that offer educational content for diverse or underserved clinical populations. We encourage all program presenters to prepare their materials with an awareness of cultural considerations.

We understand that being culturally competent as an organization and as individual professionals is an ongoing commitment and we welcome feedback to assist us in this effort.
