EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing and is recognized by over twenty controlled studies and the counseling psychology field as an effective form of trauma treatment. EMDR is a comprehensive, integrative psychotherapy approach that includes elements of psychodynamic, CBT, interpersonal, experiential and body-centered therapies. It is an information processing therapy that uses an eight-phase approach to help individuals process past and present experiences that have gotten “stuck” and are causing emotional distress, dysfunctional beliefs and physical symptoms. EMDR helps the individual process unresolved events and provides a healthy skill-set to manage distress.
