Group and individual EMDR therapy in the Humanitarian Assistance Project in southern Brazil
Dealing with catastrophe survivors is always a challenge for therapists trained in EMDR at individual level. In this text, the amazing experience of helping flood and landslide survivors in southern Brazil with EMDR is described in a step-by-step fashion. The additional training of the therapists was carried out on site, mainly with the debriefing and the EMDR group protocol. After working with multiple groups of victims in the shelters, therapists also received emotional support. Details of the support teams are also provided. Strictly speaking, what follows is not a scientific text. However, the details of the process may help those interested in the subject of catastrophe intervention to replicate the methodology and compare results.
