Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing
EMDR is a focused therapy approach used most commonly in the treatment of trauma. EMDR was originally tested on war veterans and victims of sexual violence. Although EMDR is known to be an effective treatment for trauma and PTSD, it has become more and more utilized as a treatment modality for other things such as anxiety, panic disorders, depression, and addiction.
EMDR utilizes bilateral stimulation, which allows for the ability to reprocess previously stored trauma memories and responses. Working together, the Clinician and Client move towards a healthier perception of self and traumatic events, as well as the ability to fully process traumatic memories or negative emotions.
