first 4 Asian psychologists were trained in EMDR. With the tsunami disaster in December 2004, our work actually started. The local partner was the non-profit psychologist organization Himpsi Jaya. The project was funded by the children help organization terre des hommes Deutschland and the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation.
In order to improve the traumatic impacts on the refugees in the Middle East, TraumaAid has started training projects in northern Iraq / Kurdistan and Lebanon together with terre des hommes.
