TRN Research

TRN Research

EMDR Therapy is recommended by the National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE), the World Health Organization (WHO), and the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies (ISTSS) as a safe and effective therapy for single event trauma. TRN has been established to coordinate the EMDR response in UK and Ireland to mass trauma events.

 

Although EMDR is an empirically-based therapy, TRN is committed to conducting the highest quality of research in evaluating the efficacy of EMDR with mass trauma. The research team at TRN is led by Professor Ian Barron, University of Massachusetts and Honorary Professor at the University of Dundee, Scotland.

TRN is all about delivering service, however, online EMDR is untested. We have selected one of the simplest research designs with minimal demands for implementation that will give therapists and TRN evidence regarding the efficacy of treatment.

 

In addition, our research will generate needed evidence to raise the position of EMDR within national and international guidelines to provide greater access to EMDR for clients. Finally, our research generates funding for TRN to provide more EMDR therapists to respond to mass trauma events. We look forward to working with you to enable research to help practitioners make our world a healing place.
