Hermosillo Daycare Fire & EMDR

Many of you may have heard of the tragic nursery fire in Hermosillo, Mexico on June 5, 2009. The blaze killed 49 children and injured more than 100 others — all of which were under the age of 6 years old. EMDR HAP – Mexico responded quickly to the need for trauma treatment, and has begun to offer pro-bono services to victims families.

“It was the worst tragedy of this kind in Mexican History. On Jun 31, July 1 & 2, the Mexican team gave EMDR part 1 training to 25 mental health professionals from that city and EMDR therapy to 17 children relatives. The team will give a total of 60 pro-bono hours of EMDR Basic training (20 hours consultation) and at least 1 year of free consultation,” said Nacho Jarero.

Thank you to all of you who volunteer your time and efforts to help victims of tragic events such as these.
