The Trauma Recovery Network (TRN) is a coalition of Trauma Recovery/HAP and local TRN associations and chapters in cities and regions across the U.S. Each association and chapter is the local initiative of EMDR-trained mental health clinicians, working as volunteers to assist their home communities and provide backup to other communities in times of emergency.
While emergency response, in the form of brief pro bono therapy, is the most prominent feature of association or chapter work, the capability to respond rests on the ongoing work of each association or chapter to prepare itself on several dimensions.
TRN Chapters focus on six key functions:
Trauma Recovery/HAP volunteers who are EMDR clinicians are eligible to apply for membership in a TRN association or chapter here. If an association or chapter is not available, a group of Trauma Recovery/HAP volunteers can apply to start one here. Clinicians who have registered as volunteers with the Trauma Recovery Network, but have not joined a local association or chapter are considered members of the National Trauma Recovery Network At Large.
