THEME OF THE DAY: Partnering with Allied Professionals

Building on earlier presentations, Day 3 will consider potential contributions by, and collaboration with, allied professionals. Peacebuilding would benefit from EI for traumatized military, negotiating, mediation and humanitarian personnel. Likewise, first responders, with their distinct culture, would benefit from EMDR-based service and support with early intervention tools for crisis intervention and peer support. Medical personnel worldwide, properly trained and supported, could help overcome the shortage of professional therapists. The day will conclude with a commentary on the scope of the conference presentations and discussions, and vision setting for the future of EMDR-based early interventions.
