Dear <<First Name>>,

This is the August Monthly Update and there is some very current news about Gaziantep, the town in Turkey that has been in the news recently.
Trauma Aid UK
Bosnian Project
This is the 5th cohort of Bosnian EMDR trainees in Tuzla, Bosnia-Herzegovina.

EMDR Training Bosnia Tuzla 2061 08

They have just completed Part 2 of their EMDR Training and will complete Part 3 in December 2016. The picture is a little hazy but Sian Morgan is standing in the middle row on the left.

We now have more than 100 fully trained. Many thanks to the Bosnian team of Prof. Mevludin Hasanovic with Facilitators Sedin Habibovic and Semsa Sabanovic, who is about to attend the Consultants’ Training in Manchester.

Thanks also to Volunteer Supervisors in the UK: Colin Brazier, Davy Hutton, Sonya Farrell and Maxine Sherrell who have been working via Skype with some of this group.  They are all steaming ahead with their EMDR practice!

Middle East Project
Following the recent suicide bombing in Gaziantep and the increased conflict on the Syrian border, our planned Part 2/3 EMDR training for the group working here is under question due to concerns about security.  We may have to postpone it until things have settled.

However, Dr Khalid Sultan from the UK, one of the Facilitators on the previous trainings in Turkey, will be there working both with refugees and at the same time supervising some of the trainees from Part 1. 

Meanwhile, Trauma Aid UK is looking to extend EMDR training to other countries in the region.


Work continues on the new branding for Trauma Aid UK.

Work on designing the new web site is almost complete and the small re-branding group met again recently to refine the layout and content for the site which is now working in a draft format.

We have had more people renewing their memberships having not realised that they had lapsed.

The total of members has now exceeded the number in 2015 which is good news.

Please check your status below and if you would like to renew your membership support for our work then you can do so online through our website - (which still has the HAP UK and Ireland branding).

Your membership status is: <<Membership Status>>
