Extinguish PTSD Fund
We believe in being part of the solution. That’s why we have started the Extinguish PTSD Fund. With this fund, we sponsor therapists from RI and MA to attend specialized treatment training for PTSD, known as Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy. To learn more about EMDR therapy click here link EMDR is a structured therapy that encourages the patient to focus briefly on the trauma memory while simultaneously experiencing bilateral stimulation (typically eye movements), which is associated with a reduction in the vividness and emotion associated with the trauma memories. This therapy was and still is pivotal to Edmund personally in managing his symptoms. We believe the more EMDR-trained therapists in our local area, the more first responders we can directly impact. We also believe in the power of the trickle-down effect on their loved ones and our community.
