"We are all responsible for the world we live in. Worldwide, clinicians are forging bonds that transcend countries and ideologies. Bonds that can help heal the trauma and pain that lead to ongoing violence and suffering. To make a difference that affects generations to come—don’t leave it to anyone else. We all have to take a part in it." — Dr. Francine Shapiro.

WHAT IS THE ASSYST HEART HUMANITARIAN  PROJECT?

In March 2022, at the start of the Ukrainian war, the Humanitarian Emergency ASSYST Response Project was born to give specialized mental health providers (SMHP) from countries needing support the knowledge to conduct sustainable Humanitarian & Research Psychosocial Projects.

HOW MANY SMHP HAVE BEEN TRAINED PRO-BONO AND FROM WHICH COUNTRIES?

As of May 2024, over 10,000 SMHP from 27 countries have been trained pro-bono. The countries are Ukraine, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Romania, Hungary, Turkey, Syria, Bulgaria, Iran, South Sudan, Peru, the USA, Poland, Armenia, Ethiopia, Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Canada/Labrador, Chile, Spain, Colombia, Iceland, and Brazil.

IS IT NECESSARY FOR SMHP TO BE EMDR PRACTITIONERS?

No, it is not necessary to be an EMDR practitioner but it is Mandatory to live in the geographical area of the training

We have observed that after seeing the effectiveness of the ASSYST treatment intervention procedures, SMHP are more likely to take the EMDR therapy training.

WHAT ARE THE ASSYST HEART PARTICIPANT'S REQUIREMENTS?

Please, keep in mind that only SMHP living in the affected country or geographical area can take this training.

Students must participate and keep their cameras on during the whole first part of the training (theory and video demos).

Students must participate in the ASSYST online or in-person practicum after the  first part of the training.

Students will provide the ASSYST treatment intervention procedures to real life patients after the practicum.

Students must attend the Q&A session after their clinical practice and keep their cameras on the whole time. 

Only the students that fulfill all the previous listed requirements will receive the certificate of completion.

The ASSYST HEART faculty gives pro-bono guidance on how to do field-work and research with the ASSYST treatment intervention procedures
