EMDR training in a new country


In Slovakia, as a country with socialist past, the problem of psychotraumatology was underestimated. Thanks to the Humanitarian Assistance Program-Europe (HAP], it was possible to bring the new knowledge and skills to this field. At the beginning there was the EMDR training in Germany for two psychiatrists from Slovakia, then the seminars and supervisions in Slovakia with mentors from HAP, which still continue. The result is 40 therapists with the training including Psychotraumatology in general and EMDR Level I and II.

This talk offers you the review of a history of bringing psychotraumatology and EMDR to our country, first results and feedback.
