EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing)

Printer-friendly version

EMDR (Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing) is a kind of therapy that can help with reprogramming trauma.

A recovering porn addict reported:

I am determined to heal myself. I am seeing a therapist to help me around the anxiety by doing sensate focus and EMDR and meditation. Things are going well.

A policewoman who has to look at disturbing images finds EMDR helpful in staying on an even keel:

I’ve got a great psychologist who has kept my perspective on what I do pretty healthy.  He uses a technique called EMDR – which interestingly enough has to do with changing brain patterns – basically taking advantage of neuroplasticity to keep me healthy.  Might be something that could be of use to your guys!
