Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR)

Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing is an evidence based form of therapy to process trauma memories. "It is a form of therapy that helps people heal from trauma or other distressing life experiences. EMDR therapy is an integrative psychotherapy approach that has been extensively researched and used to resolve many issues and challenges. It is an empirically supported treatment for acute and chronic posttraumatic stress disorder. EMDR therapy has helped countless people of all ages to resolve psychological distress." From the EMDRIA International Association website. 


I have personally experienced and witnessed the rapid change and progress that is experienced using this trauma modality. "Eye movements or other forms of bilateral stimulation seem to activate your problem solving process; something that happens during REM sleep when your eyes are darting back and forth. By focusing on a specific problem, and both its negative and positive emotions, sensations, and beliefs, then adding bilateral stimulation, your brain begins problem solving. Since you are focused on the specific problem, your brain is able to work through it more effectively than what would happen if it randomly comes up while you are sleeping." EMDR Consulting.
