Jarero and Lucina (Lucy) Artigas use the butterfly hug and group interventions to heal those effected by tragedies. The group setting allows for a group administration of individual EMDR treatment, ensuring that many individuals can be treated simultaneously. This is highly valuable in settings where resources are limited. They allow EMDR therapy treatment to be more affordable and accessible to all people, no matter their socioeconomic status.
