    Effective Treatment

    A 3- and 6-month follow-up of individuals randomly assigned to either EMDR treatment or standard care (SC) treatment for posttraumatlc stress disorder (PTSD) indicates significantly greater improvements found with EMDR at posttreatment in an earlier article (S. Marcus, P. Marquis, & C. Sakai, 1997)

    EMDR

    The use of eye movement or other bilateral stimulation combined with a unique therapeutic process can help people process past traumas or disturbing life events and let go of negative beliefs about themselves. Disturbing life events can have a lasting effect on the psyche and may be stored in memory in the same way as severe trauma.

    People experience varying degrees of trauma while growing up: sexual abuse, childhood humiliations and shaming, bullying, neglectful or overly critical parents, divorce or separation, moves to new homes or schools, intrusive medical procedures and living in a chaotic family, to name a few. By directly accessing and processing these memories, we can reduce or eliminate symptoms.

    A typical EMDR session lasts from 60 to 90 minutes.

    Effective Evidence Based Therapy

    Four recent, independent, rigorously controlled studies of Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) have reported that 84 to 100% of single-trauma victims no longer maintain the posttraumatic stress disorder diagnosis after the equivalent of three 90-minute sessions.

    EMDR therapy does not require talking in detail about the distressing issue or
    completing homework between sessions. EMDR therapy, rather than focusing on changing themotions, thoughts, or behaviors resulting from the distressing issue, allows the brain toresume its natural healing process.

    EMDR therapy is designed to resolve unprocessed traumatic memories in the brain. Formany clients, EMDR therapy can be completed in fewer sessions than otherpsychotherapies. (EMDRIA.ORG)

  • EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a psychotherapy that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences. Repeated studies show that by using EMDR therapy people can experience the benefits of psychotherapy that once took years to make a difference. It is widely assumed that severe emotional pain requires a long time to heal.

     

    EMDR therapy shows that the mind can in fact heal from psychological trauma much as the body recovers from physical trauma. When you cut your hand, your body works to close the wound. If a foreign object or repeated injury irritates the wound, it festers and causes pain. Once the block is removed, healing resumes.
