EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is an evidence based psychotherapy used to treat post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The 8 phase, 3 pronged process of EMDR facilitates the resumption of normal information processing and integration. This treatment approach, which targets past experience, current triggers, and future potential challenges, results in the alleviation of presenting symptoms, a decrease or elimination of distress from the disturbing memory, improved view of the self, relief from bodily disturbance, and resolution of present and future anticipated triggers. In the broadest sense, EMDR is an integrative psychotherapy approach intended to treat psychological disorders to assist individuals in fulfilling their potential. This technique aims to achieve comprehensive treatment safely, effectively, and efficiently.
