Humanitarian outreach is a significant part of the practice of eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) therapy. The development of training in Arabic and provision of EMDR in areas of ongoing conflict including Palestine, Libya, Syria, and Iraq is described, and brief accounts of clients and therapists illustrate the help that EMDR has brought to survivors of conflict, imprisonment, and torture. Three clients, each with a diagnosis of posttraumatic stress disorder, are briefly presented here: one from a refugee camp in Palestine, one from a Syrian refugee camp in Jordan, and the other from a war zone in Libya.
