What Volunteers Do

Trauma Recovery/HAP aids human trauma recovery by training mental health professionals in EMDR therapies anywhere in the world. We build the capacity to treat psychological trauma in under-served communities by training local therapists in EMDR Part 1 and Part 2. Trauma Recovery trained volunteers, in co-ordination with local public and private community agencies, deliver these trainings.

Volunteers are also presenters for specialty trainings and Workshops, such as Trauma Recovery/HAP Traumatology & Stabilization.  

Roles and Responsibilities
