This year has been a demanding year for TRN members throughout the United States. The pace at which we are witnessing mass shootings and experiencing mass trauma in the United States is hard to grasp. We want to take a moment to recognize the important work our TRN Associations are carrying out in their communities, welcome several new associations to the network, and share how you can contribute to the efforts of the Trauma Recovery Network.

Share your knowledge about trauma recovery and response! You are invited to submit a presentation for the 2023 Trauma Recovery Network Conference taking place April 21-22, 2023 in Garden Grove, California.
This two-day conference is centered on the theme “Building Community Response and Recovery.”
Presentations should be relevant to the field of EMDR, disaster response & recovery, and community building and must be original contributions. Topics can focus on clinical application, experiential development, business, and overall TRN operations. 

HAP Faculty, TRN Volunteers, non-clinical volunteers, and community members at-large with information that may contribute to the shared understanding of treating communities plagued by natural disasters and/or the effects of violent conflict are invited to apply. 

The deadline for presentation submissions is October 15, 2022!

The inaugural EMDR Walk in the Park took place Sunday, August 14, 2022 with nearly 100 participants. Those who joined the walk in-person gathered at East Rock Park in New Haven, CT to walk a scenic 2 mile course.

We were thrilled to have nearly 60 virtual walkers join the event from 18 states including Alabama, Arizona, California, Florida, Idaho, and Massachusetts, as well as internationally from Norway and India.
