Meet Bunny, an 8 year old 15 lb. domesticated Maine Coon cat. Her owner, Andrea says she acts like a dog and always waits for her by the door when she get home. She is also very territorial when it comes to her owner and her space. She is talkative with her chirping sounds, loves yoga, and is completely lovable and friendly.
Springtime always brings a special energy to growth and new beginnings. That energy infused Trauma Recovery Humanitarian Assistance Programs in a variety of ways to help our community of clinicians and mental health agencies deal with the pandemic and continue on our training mission.
In our June newsletter, during PTSD Awareness Month, I want to remind you of the resources we have created to help clinicians adapt EMDR to Teletherapy, available in the Distance Learning and Stories & Projects area of our website, and many other new beginnings we have underway, including:
New virtual EMDR Basic 1 and 2 training events,
Our completely redesigned website, with more convenient access to content, events and tools,
A new addition to our exceptional training faculty,
Our continued efforts to support expanded trauma treatment through EMDR, internationally and locally.
As always, we look forward to your comments and suggestions.
All the best,
Carol R. Martin

New Virtual EMDR Basic Training
Pivoting to the Pandemic
The Covid-19 crisis disrupted Trauma Recovery/HAP’s training operations like so many other small non-profit and commercial service providers. HAP wrapped up their last
EMDR Part 2 on-site training in Philadelphia, PA, March 15, as cautions about virus transmission were elevating.
Trauma Recovery Humanitarian Assistance Programs introduced a new website earlier this month with the ambition of delighting their clinician, host agency and volunteer community. Specifically, the redesign seeks to improve user experience with more convenience and access to important content, resources and tools.
EMDR Therapists Band Together for Continental Impact
In 2010 during the first EMDR Asia conference those present working or interested in Africa gathered in Bali to exchange ideas. Fast forward to 2019, when 5 African nations formed the EMDR Africa Network during an EMDR training. In 2020, these and other colleagues from Africa met via video conference to get an EMDR Africa association off the ground.
This month we'd like to recognize the many volunteers who dedicated themselves to help us prepare our Corona Virus response package, called
EMDR:Specialty Refreshers Responding to Covid-19, the members of the Trauma Recovery/HAP Think Tank, and the trainer, facilitators and staff involved in producing our first two virtual trainings.
The Think Tank includes: Jim Knipe PhD.,Carol Forgash, LCSW, Peggy Moore, LICSW,Tara May PhD., Rosalie Thomas, RN, PhD; and Camille Zeiter, LICSW.
Our virtual Trainer and Facilitators include Laurie Furman and Marion Brown, Gretchen Leu, Kate Becker, Marcia Holland, and Leanne Harper, and Don deGraffenreid,LCSW,. Special thanks to Cheryl Kenn, LCSW, PdD. who helped with the RDI training.
Some volunteers' clinical titles were unavailable at press time.
Many thanks to you all, from Trauma Recovery Humanitarian Assistance Programs.
