What is EMDR?
EMDR, short for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, is a style of therapy which is used to address traumatic or disturbing life experiences that can cause, or contribute, to various mental health issues.
In EMDR, patients recall problematic memories with the guidance of a therapist. Therapists help their patients evoke a target memory, asking them to recall, for instance, the sounds, smells and feeling of their environment at the time. Once an image is firmly in a patient’s mind, the therapist will guide the patient’s eye movement. Patients will repeat this process until their overall anxiety about the memory is reduced and they can work on what is called a “positive cognition.” A therapist will work with a patient to see how they would have preferred to feel during the event, for instance, “empowered” instead of “helpless” or “calm” instead of “panicked.”
