WHAT IS EYE MOVEMENT DESENSITIZATION REPROCESSING THERAPY?
SELF ADMINISTERED EMDR THERAPY
EMDR therapy is considered a new, nontraditional form of psychotherapy. Therapists mostly use it to treat PTSD or trauma responses.
This therapy is based on the theory that traumatic events aren’t properly processed in the brain when they happen. During an EMDR therapy session focus on a trauma memory. Begin side-to-side eye movements following the round object while thinking of the memory. This engages both sides of your brain and is termed bilateral stimulation.
