DESENSITIZATION & REPROCESSING (EMDR)

What is EMDR?

EMDR was developed in the late 1980s and was used mainly for the more severe traumas, such as rape and combat trauma. It is recognized worldwide as an effective form of trauma treatment. This integrative psychotherapy approach has helped many people of all ages relieve many types of psychological stress. The goal of EMDR therapy is to help clients view once disturbing information in a less disturbing way. The time it takes to complete treatment will depend
on the history of the client.

 

Its use expanded to other forms of trauma as research began to show its validity.

Some of these include:

  • Abuse and Neglect

  • Diagnosis of an Illness

  • Accidents

  • Separation and Divorce

  • Anxiety Disorders

  • Depression

  • Alcohol and Substance Abuse

  • Self-esteem
