Often disturbing events happen in our lives that stay with us. The brain cannot process information as it ordinarily does. One moment can become ‘frozen in time’ and remembering the trauma may feel as bad as going through it for the first time. This is because the images, sounds, smells and feelings still seem to be there – they haven’t changed. Such memories have a lasting negative effect that interferes with the way a person sees the world and the way that they relate to other people.
EMDR Therapy has a positive effect on how the brain processes information. Following an EMDR Therapy session, the person no longer relives the trauma. They still recall that an incident happened, but it no longer feels upsetting.
In this video, our Principal Psychologist, Kerry Howard, explains why you might consider engaging in an EMDR Therapy process.
EMDR Therapy has similar results to that of other trauma treatments such as exposure therapy, but over a shorter timeframe.
Studies have shown that 77-90% of clients with PTSD were able to eliminate their symptoms after 3-7 sessions of EMDR Therapy (without homework).
During EMDR Therapy, the therapist works with the client to identify a specific problem as a focus for the treatment session. The client then calls to mind the disturbing issue or event, what was seen, felt, heard, thought, etc. The therapist will then begin eye movements or other bilateral stimulation. These eye movements are used until the memory becomes less disturbing and is associated with a positive thought and belief about yourself.
In 1987, psychologist Dr Francine Shapiro made the chance observation that eye movements can reduce the intensity of disturbing thoughts, under certain conditions. Dr Shapiro studied this effect scientifically, and in 1989 reported success using EMDR Therapy to treat victims of trauma (Journal of Traumatic Stress).
These days, EMDR Therapy integrates elements of many effective psychotherapies to maximise treatment effects. These include:
EMDR Therapy is an information processing therapeutic technique that incorporates an eight phase approach.
