EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a psychotherapy technique that promotes relief from symptoms and emotional distress resulting from past trauma. When administered properly by a trained therapist, in many cases, EMDR has been shown to garner results in a shorter timeframe than that of traditional methods.
EMDR therapy combines different elements to maximize treatment effects and involves attention to the past, present, and future. Focus is given to past traumas and related events, to current situations that cause distress, and to developing the skills and attitudes needed for positive future actions.
What EMDR Can Treat
EMDR is primarily used to overcome symptoms associated with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). However, EMDR has been found to effectively treat other mood and anxiety disorders, including:
- Panic disorder
