The EMDR Humanitarian Assistance Program (EMDR-HAP) is a non-profit organization “committed to relieving human suffering and breaking the cycle of violence by providing training to mental health professionals serving traumatized communities worldwide.” Volunteers provide EMDR training and support at free or reduced rates in the aftermath of natural or manmade disasters so that the local mental health professionals can meet the ongoing needs of traumatized communities. Affordable training is also available for mental health personnel working with under-served populations on an ongoing basis.

EMDR-HAP was established in the United States in the aftermath of the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995. It has spread worldwide and there is currently a Humanitarian Assistance Program in nearly every country that has an EMDR professional organization.
