We hope you had a special Memorial Day Weekend. It is a good time for sales and barbecue, and an even better time for reflection and remembrance of the lives so many have given for our country. We realize the profound effects that service to our country can have on those that serve and on their loved ones. It is because of this that we maintain our resolve and continue our work to bring help and healing to the underserved.
One of our efforts for help and healing starts June 1st when our team from EMDR Asia arrives in Nepal. During the course of their week long trip, they will provide a
Introduction of EMDR, Psychotraumatology and Stabilization Workshop
", "Part 1 EMDR Therapy Basic Training" and pro bono treatment to those suffering. The Workshop attendees will be counselors and caregivers from the districts affected by the devastating earthquake last spring. It provides them with the necessary understanding of trauma and its effects so that they can better aid their communities. The Part 1 trainees will be Nepalese mental health professional, some from the Nepal Psychiatric Association. They will receive supervision and then a Part 2 Training at a later date. We are so thankful to EMDR Asia and the World Health Organization for collaborating with us to make these efforts possible. If you wish to contribute to the ongoing project in Nepal click

We are gearing up for the 2016 EMDRIA conference being held August 25th - 28th at the Hyatt Regency in Minneapolis, MN. We will be sending you more information regarding our booth and events in the coming weeks. We hope to see you there!
