> I don't know if the conference your therapist is going to is a training conference or not, but I didn't see Columbia listed as an upcoming training session, so I would assume not. In which case, she won't want to use EMDR until she is actually trained (a couple of lectures just doesn't get it).

I realize this. I called and it is a one day "conference". I think it is just informational. They will send me a pamphlet. I just thought she might become familiar with the local people who are practiced in it so she could recommend someone. To me it is scary to choose someone from a list and suddenly allow them inside my pain.. I feel safer when I have a recommendation from someone who knows the person. I imagine I won't get to talk to the professionals themselves--perhaps a secretary--that seems to be the way it is now.
> You can only get the EMDR training if you are a real therapist and have a licensing board for whatever your training is.

That is good to know, thanks.

> Regarding the meds for social phobia:

I wan't really thinking of the other meds. Only the comment that Buspar is of no use--which was emphasized. Buspar seems to be viewed by one group as totally useless and by another group as a drug that is underused and has great potential. Why such a division of opinions?

I have 2 more therapy sessions authorized and then could try to get authorization for a diff therapist. I will call insurance co and see if any of those people are on the list of providers before I call them. Would it be likely that someone trained in cog beh would also be EMDR cert?

Thanks for hanging on with me.
