We are EMDR 4 Peace, an international organization of mental therapists working to alleviate suffering of the victims of Israeli-Palestinian conflict through the effective EMDR therapy method

Who We Are

Founded in 2022, EMDR 4 Peace is a non-profit organization of EMDR professionals, aiming at cooperating by sharing current knowledge and skills, using EMDR in conflict areas.​ Since starting in June 2022 we have gathered dozens of volunteers, including Israelis and Palestinians, Jews and Arabs, all EMDR certified trainers, facilitators, consultants, practitioners, and mental health professionals, who are all seeking to promote our vision.

What is EMDR Therapy?

EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. It is a psychotherapy treatment that was developed in the late 1980s by psychologist Dr. Francine Shapiro. Shapiro discovered accidentally that eye movements (or other bilateral stimulation) could reduce the intensity of the impact of difficult memories and disturbing thoughts.
