WHAT IS EMDR?
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is an integrative psychotherapy approach that has been extensively researched and proven effective for the treatment of trauma and PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder). EMDR incorporates components from a variety of different treatment approaches.
WHAT IS TRAUMA?
Trauma is experienced differently by different people, depending on a variety of factors. "Big T" traumas include experiences such as abuse, assault, natural disasters or witnessing a serious accident, but symptoms of traumatic distress can also appear as a result of an accumulation of "little T" traumas, which can sometimes be harder to recognize. They're the daily hurts that can build up over time.
WHAT ABOUT OTHER CONDITIONS?
In addition to post-traumatic stress, EMDR can also be useful in the treatment of a variety of other conditions, including anxiety and panic disorders, depression, complicated grief, stress reduction, combatting stage fright, and more .
