Trauma Recovery/HAP Newsletter
Holiday 2016

Happy Holidays from all of us at Trauma Recovery, EMDR Humanitarian Assistance Programs!  Thank you to those who has gave their time and treasure to help this organization to stand ready to deliver education and mental health intervention within disaster impacted communities, creating an enduring resource and legacy for local recovery efforts. 

In the aftermath of the horrific Pulse Nightclub shooting in Orlando, FL, the Greater Orlando Trauma Recovery Network immediately reached out to deliver training, educational materials and pro bono treatment.

Gifts made to the Francine Shapiro Fund for Disaster Recovery allowed Trauma Recovery/HAP to quickly support the recovery work in the Orlando.  Due to the extensive training efforts, there are 58 more EMDR therapy trained clinicians to serve their community. 100% of your gift to this Fund is put to use providing resources of ongoing treatment and training.

This is what your support provides - hope and healing to communities such as Orlando during their time of greatest need. Sadly, we never know where this will happen next, but your help us allows us to be ready when the next disaster strikes.

Warmest wishes,
Carol Martin
Executive Director

Taking EMDR Training to the next level with 
Deany Laliotis

Deany shared, "In 1992, I was working at the Baltimore veteran's Hospital and we were just deluged in post-trauma issues. So when I learned EMDR therapy, it not only changed my practice but it truly changed my life. I also had the great fortune to get my initial training at a time when there was tremendous growth in the EMDR community. Very early on, I was invited to join the EMDR Institute faculty as a facilitator, and I was excited for the opportunity to participate in speading the word on this transformative approach to treating trauma. I could see that this was going to be a big deal going forward."

EMDR Therapy at the Heart of My Practice 

Betsy Prince, L.C.S.W., was introduced to EMDR therapy while working at a nonprofit agency in New Jersey. "I was a year out of graduate school" Betsy shared, "and everyone in this particular organization was trained in EMDR therapy. I remember thinking that this was the most amazing process I'd ever seen. EMDR therapy was not a treatment covered in my graduate studies, so this was my first exposure and it made an incredible impact on me."
