Below is a video of Rolf Carriere speaking at TEDxGroningen (October 2013) on the use of EMDR to heal trauma on a global scale. We hope that you will share it to encourage others to learn more about EMDR:

“What would the world look like if we were able to systematically heal all the traumas? I believe that world would be a lot less violent because we would finally begin to interrupt the insidious interpersonal and intergeneration transmission of violence and abuse. That world, I believe, would be a lot more peaceful and also a lot more prosperous. I believe that world is within reach. I am convinced I believe that EMDR has the power and potential to help treat and heal humanity’s wounded memories.”  ~ Rolf Carriere
