EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. Research has shown EMDR to be highly effective for the treatment of trauma. Trauma looks different for different people. Sometimes the trauma is more easily identifiable, as in the case of a sexual assault. Other times trauma may be harder to name, as in the case of long-term emotional abuse or neglect. The effects of trauma may linger long after the incident has passed. EMDR has helped millions of people recover from the effects of psychological stress. We like EMDR because it seems to work more efficiently and effectively than general talk therapy. Curious about what happens in a typical session of EMDR? Click here.
