TRN Members can help connect with and educate community members about the effects of traumatic stress and treatment with EMDR therapy.

What are some benefits of volunteering as a TRN member?

Volunteers receive training in the neurobiology of traumatic stress, methods for stabilization and effective post disaster treatment, techniques for working collaboratively with disaster response teams, and Early EMDR Interventions (EEIs) that can be used within hours, days or weeks of a traumatic event. These trainings will be provided to volunteers at no cost. As an additional benefit, all members of the CVTRN will receive free CE’s and EMDRIA credits for required training programs.

And TRN Volunteers can connect with like-minded and motivated peers while providing an extraordinary service.
