Statement of Concern and Action

We join the caring and concerned members of the professional association, EMDRIA, in expressing our thoughts for the children and families that have been affected by the current situation forcing them to be separated. One of the core tenets of our work is a commitment to those who are most vulnerable in our communities and in other parts of the world. Those who are suffering from the effects of trauma brought on by events such as war, oppression, violence and the effects of extreme weather. It is hard to imagine a more vulnerable person than a child who, with their parents, may be fleeing violence and oppression in their home country. This experience can inflict trauma that can create long lasting generational damage on all who are involved including those who are witness to it.

Right now, we are developing a comprehensive plan of action. Our efforts are informed by a committee of volunteers in the Southern borders, led by Peggy Moore, LISW and Dee Blinka, LCSW, ACSW, BCD. We will continue to keep you apprised as we better understand how and where we can be most effective.

Over the past 25 years, we have learned that collaborating with local organizations, agencies and professionals has allowed us to have the most profound and long-lasting effect on the individuals and communities served. The goal is to put in place long term practices and structures that will serve the providers of service as well as the receivers of service. We will be asking Trauma Recovery Network (TRN) members and others to join us to provide direct services to the affected families and children.

Our mission remains the same: To increase the capacity for effective treatment of psychological trauma in underserved communities throughout the world. Trauma Recovery/HAP volunteers are well-trained EMDR therapists who give of their caring, time and expertise to achieve this mission. Their support and the support of others will be invaluable during this time of heartbreaking and overwhelming need. These children and their families need our help. And, we will be there!

Sincerely,

Carol R. Martin
Executive Director
Trauma Recovery/HAP

CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS: Southeast Florida TRN

In light of the recent tragedy in Parkland, our volunteers have worked diligently to establish a local Trauma Recovery Network (TRN) to support the Southeast Florida community.  We encourage all local EMDR clinicians to create a Trauma Recovery/HAP volunteer account and then apply for the Southeast Florida TRN.  Click here for more info.

YOU Can Make A Difference

Trauma Recovery/HAP is mobilizing resources to actively respond to both community environmental disasters and mass violence events.

Tequesta, FL. – March 2nd and 3rd, Trauma Recovery/HAP held a reduced cost EMDR R-TEP and G-TEP training.  This training was originally scheduled in response to Hurricane Irma, but it also served the greater Parkland area.  More information about additional training and local efforts through the newly formed Southeast Florida TRN will be available soon.

Las Vegas, NV. – A reduced cost Part I EMDR Training at Community Counseling Center was held on February 23 – 25th, 2018.  Additional training efforts will be provided over the next few months including EMDR R-TEP/G-TEP.

On Monday, February 26th a one-day specialty training was provided reduced cost at University Medical Center in Las Vegas. “Using the EMDR Recent Event Protocol with Homicide Survivors and Victims of Other Violent Crimes” will be offered to support local EMDR practitioners and help launch the Greater Las Vegas Trauma Recovery Network (TRN).

On Tuesday, February 27th, members of the Greater Las Vegas TRN, provided pro bono EMDR therapy for first responders, who have been referred from the University Medical Center of Southern Nevada.

Marathon, Fl. – Located in the Florida Keys, the Marathon Fire Station hosted a Part I EMDR Training on January 11th, for local clinicians who want to help residents recover from the devastation of Hurricane Irma.  This training was offered at a reduced cost and the hope is that it will prove the “seeds to help grow” a local Trauma Recovery Network in the community, which will be able to provide pro bono EMDR services to survivors.  A Part 2 EMDR Basic Training is scheduled for May 3rd.

El Paso, TX. – February 24th and 25th, Trauma Recovery/HAP provided reduced cost EMDR R-TEP and G-TEP training in response to community violence, via the Far West Texas EMDRIA Regional Network.

Houston, TX – the Houston Area TRN, with support from the Heart of Texas TRN, has been established to work with survivors from Hurricane Harvey.

Puerto Rico – We have made initial contact with several groups providing disaster relief in Puerto Rico.  When the local environmental situation has stabilized enough, we will explore sending a training team and offer EMDR Part I in Puerto Rico.

 

Please make a contribution to the Francine Shapiro Disaster Relief Fund to support and extend these vital training events and services.

 

Thanks to all those who have already helped!
