Dr Linda Strong with Elan Shapiro on Sunday 8 October 2017 at Imperial College, London - Early EMDR Intervention Training (R-TEP and G-TEP). This two day workshop was arranged by Trauma Aid UK (EMDR Humanitarian Assistance Programmes) and offered pro-bono by Elan Shapiro to Trauma Aid UK Volunteers (this includes SSCL staff) in response to the London Grenfell Tower fire and recent terror attacks.

Elan Shapiro is a Psychologist in private practice with over 30 years experience of working in a community psychological service in upper Nazareth. Originally specialising in Adlerian psychology, he came to EMDR in 1989 after attending one of the first trainings by Francine Shapiro. In 1994, he became an EMDR Institute Facilitator and was among the founding members of EMDR Europe. He is an EMDR Europe Accredited Consultant, former Secretary of the EMDR Europe Association, and recipient of the David Servan-Schreiber Award for contribution to EMDR from the University of Lorraine, Metz in November 2012 and also the Servan-Schreiber Award for outstanding contribution to EMDR from the EMDR Europe Association at the annual conference in the Hague in June 2016. Over the last decade, Elan has been developing a way of delivering trauma relief in the immediate aftermath of a critical incident. The Recent Traumatic Episode Protocol (R-TEP) and Group Traumatic Episode Protocol (G-TEP) are brief EMDR strategies used to treat acute distress before trauma memories have been integrated to help provide relief, prevent complications, strengthen resilience, and prevent the accumulation of trauma memories. The EMDR R-TEP and G-TEP have shown beneficial results in controlled studies.
