Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR)
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a psychotherapy treatment developed by Francine Shapiro in the 1980s. It is primarily used to treat individuals who have experienced trauma, such as those who have been diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
EMDR is based on the idea that traumatic experiences can become "stuck" in the brain, preventing individuals from processing them in a healthy way. The therapy involves a series of eye movements, or other forms of bilateral stimulation (such as stereo music), while the patient focuses on a traumatic memory and/or negative belief about themselves. The eye movements are thought to mimic the natural process of rapid eye movement (REM) sleep, during which the brain processes and consolidates memories. Accessing long-term memory in this fashion is thought to create meaningful, consistent change.
During an EMDR session, the therapist will guide the patient through a series of eye movements or other bilateral stimulation while they focus on the traumatic memory, trigger, or negative belief. The patient is asked to notice any thoughts, feelings, or physical sensations that arise during the process. Over time, the memory or belief becomes less distressing, and the patient is able to reprocess the experience in a healthier way.
EMDR has been shown to be effective in reducing symptoms of PTSD and other trauma-related disorders. It is also used to treat a variety of other mental health conditions, including anxiety, depression, phobias, and spiritual crisis.
