The purpose of this White Paper is to encourage the further development of EMDR Early Intervention (EMDR EI), to describe its uses and advantages, to
identify questions and topics for priority research, and to identify
strategies to expand its use in low-and middle-income countries (LMICs).
These topics will be discussed and explored in depth during the Global Summit Conference EMDR Early Intervention and Crisis Response: Current Practices, Research Findings, Global Needs and Future Directions, to be held in Boston, 20-22 April 2018. The White Paper will remain a work-in-progress before, during and after the Summit Conference, and will serve as the basis of a subsequent overview journal article.
