EMDR is an acronym for "Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing." This process is an intervention to help individuals who are survivors of any kind of traumatic event, including - but not limited to - abuse (physical, sexual, verbal, emotional), natural disasters, accidents, personal crisis or tragedy, or war. The procedure includes facilitation of eye movement while the person is guided through an account of the trauma. It is not necessary for the client to detail the negative experiences out loud during EMDR. The procedure can help individuals resolve these negative experiences and to maintain a more positive self-concept, both in relation to the trauma, and overall.
EMDR can help you by allowing you to live more fully in the present. EMDR allows you reprocess the disturbing memory or thought through bilateral stimulation. The process is rapid, and any disturbing experiences, if they occur at all, last for a comparatively short period of time. Nevertheless, you need to be aware of, and willing to experience, the strong feelings and disturbing thoughts, which sometimes occur during sessions. It is not, appropriate for everyone,however it is evidence-based and research has shown to reduce the number of therapy sessions with the use of EMDR.
