Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR)
EMDR is a structured therapy that encourages the patient to briefly focus on the trauma memory while simultaneously experiencing bilateral stimulation (typically eye movements), which is associated with a reduction in the vividness and emotion associated with the trauma memories. Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is an extensively researched, effective psychotherapy method proven to help people recover from trauma and PTSD symptoms.
EMDR therapy helps children and adults of all ages. Therapists use EMDR therapy to address a wide range of challenges: Anxiety, panic attacks, and phobias.
