Mental health workers to aid Turkish victims

Description

Six mental health professionals will fly to Turkey today to train more than 110 local psychologists to treat post-traumatic stress disorder resulting from the recent earthquake. They will use an unusual treatment called Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). The volunteer therapists are part of a worldwide organization called the Humanitarian Assistance Program (HAP) of EMDR, said Dr. Gary Quinn, a member of the Israeli group.
