 The Northern New Jersey Crisis Recovery Network (NNJCRN) is a local group of EMDR therapists who volunteer to provide free early intervention services after a community crisis.

Our mission is to help adults, teens, and children who are impacted by and in need of help recovering from natural and man-made disasters and other communal traumas in Northern New Jersey. We are able to provide trauma recovery services for a variety of situations and have already addressed the needs of our community by providing assistance after incidents of community violence, public transportation accidents, refugee trauma, and communal traumatic loss. We are now focused on providing assistance to essential workers impacted by the coronavirus pandemic. We are able to provide services in Spanish and meet the needs of diverse communities.

Why We Volunteer…

Our goal is to help individuals and the community as a whole to recover from disasters and other traumatic incidents that impact Northern New Jersey. We provide early intervention to help enhance coping and build resilience.

We are available to help in the aftermath of natural disasters, community violence, terrorism, and other communal tragedies.

What We Do…

We offer Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), a well-researched treatment for trauma. Our highly skilled team of EMDR specialists will provide services at no charge for up to six 45-minute sessions to community members, health professionals, and first responders in Northern New Jersey who are experiencing the after effects of community crises.
