In light of the recent tragedy, 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 not only take this reduced cost R-TEP/G-TEP training, but to also 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 will be providing a reduced cost EMDR R-TEP and G-TEP training.  This training was originally scheduled in response to Hurricane Irma, but it will also serve 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. – We are providing a reduced cost Part I EMDR Training at Community Counseling Center, 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 we will provide a one-day specialty training, at 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, will provide 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 will be providing 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.
