Special issue of the Journal of EMDR Practice

This special issue of the Journal of EMDR Practice and Research commemorates the 25th anniversary of the first publication (Shapiro, 1989) of eye
movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR)therapy by highlighting EMDR humanitarian projects around the world. EMDR therapy is a valuable and appropriate intervention in humanitarian crises, given its effectiveness as a brief individual treatment, consecutive-day application, and group therapy. EMDR humanitarian work has generally been focused on teaching EMDR to local therapists so they can provide the treatment to those suffering in their own communities. Projects are usually conducted by invitation and in collaboration with local agencies and/or national and international aid organizations.
