About the Event
Trauma Aid Aotearoa, a compassionate and forward-thinking organization dedicated to trauma recovery, has launched an innovative solution to assist those affected by Cyclone Gabrielle from the comfort of their own homes. In response to the challenges posed by the pandemic and the need for accessible mental health support, Trauma Aid Aotearoa has introduced an online group Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) session for cyclone survivors.
This virtual EMDR session is a testament to the organization's adaptability and commitment to helping communities heal from traumatic events, even when physical gatherings are limited. It leverages technology to create a safe and supportive space for survivors to process their emotions and find resilience in the face of adversity.
The online EMDR session will be facilitated by highly trained therapists who specialize in trauma recovery. Participants will join from the comfort of their own homes, connecting via secure video conferencing platforms. This approach ensures that individuals scattered across different locations can access much-needed support.
EMDR therapy is an evidence-based approach that aids in the reprocessing of traumatic memories, reducing their emotional impact and facilitating healthier coping strategies. In the group setting, participants will experience a sense of community and mutual support, without the need to share any traumatic materiel. Trauma Aid Aotearoa recognizes the importance of providing comprehensive assistance. In addition to the EMDR sessions, the organization will offer resources, information, and referrals to other support services tailored to cyclone survivors' specific needs.
This online group EMDR session represents a groundbreaking approach to trauma recovery, demonstrating Trauma Aid Aotearoa's commitment to innovation and accessibility in the face of adversity. By harnessing the power of digital connectivity, the organization is ensuring that individuals affected by Cyclone Gabrielle can access the healing they need, regardless of physical barriers, providing a beacon of hope and support during these challenging times.
