The primary trauma therapy used by our clinicians is Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). EMDR is a psychotherapy technique that is used to treat mental health conditions that arise from traumatic events in the past. EMDR therapy involves recalling a specific traumatic experience while following a side-to-side visual stimulus delivered by the therapist. This method aims to help individuals process and recover from past experiences that are affecting their mental health and wellbeing. EMDR therapy is best known for its role in treating post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), but its use is expanding to include treatment of many other conditions.
Compared to other therapy methods, EMDR is relatively new, but dozens of clinical trials since its development show this technique is effective and can help a person faster than many other methods. Adolescents, teenagers, and adults of all ages can benefit from this treatment.
