Triangle Area NC TRN
Community Focus: Our group is formed in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic that is deeply affecting our communities, and so many others. We will strive to provide high quality care in addressing the trauma related psychological needs of first line health workers. Referrals will originate primarily from within the UNC Chapel Hill and possibly Duke Healthcare systems (pending capacity) who are experiencing trauma as a result of the crucial roles they are playing in COVID-19 response.
Model: Initial efforts will focus primarily on implementation of a brief treatment model (6-10 sessions) using the EMD and R-TEP protocols, as recommended by TR/EMDR HAP, with the goal of stabilization. Sessions will be delivered 1:1 via telehealth due to social distancing requirements associated with coronavirus. The group will also explore the development and implementation of possible remote application of the G-TEP/IGTP protocol.
