Podcast Episode: What Is EMDR Therapy?
EMDR - Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing therapy. What is that? It is a psychotherapy therapy technique that utilizes sensory input such as eye movements to help people recover from trauma. As a therapeutic approach, EMDR is based on several theories of psychotherapy, including concepts of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). EMDR techniques are used to unblock emotional processes that have been stagnated by distress. By unblocking your emotions, you can (in a sense) reprogram your brain. Then, you can begin to heal from the fear and pain associated with the trauma and emotional distress you have experienced. EMDR can also allow you to gain a new perspective, which can facilitate improved self-esteem and enhance your personal beliefs about your capabilities.
