Trauma Recovery Network (TRN) associations and chapters bring together EMDR therapists ready to serve their community in times of emergency. Members bring diverse expertise to their chapter and benefit from active programs of professional development in the area of clinical emergency response. Beyond their clinical role in times of emergency, TRN volunteers have opportunities to serve in other roles to support the TRN mission.
To apply for association or chapter affiliation with the TRN, all founding members should first complete the TRN member application, then the Point of Contact should contact us here. An online application to expedite this process is under development.
The national Trauma Recovery Network (NTRN) strives to assist the growth of local TRN associations and chapters engaged in not-for-profit pro bono services, and to uphold standards of good practice that are consistent with research findings and with the experience of EMDR clinicians who have been active and effective in emergency response. Successful applicants will be authorized to employ the designation “Trauma Recovery Network Association or Chapter.”
Beyond expecting conformity with the Mission and Functions, Statement of Principles and Basic Standards, NTRN does not exercise any control over the governance or activity of individual associations or chapters or their members. NTRN operates as a project of Trauma Recovery/EMDR Humanitarian Assistance Programs and endeavors to support the growth of a strong, voluntary network of pro bono providers of care, working through self-governing associations and chapters in local communities across the nation.
