EMDR therapy is a focused approach for treating trauma and other symptoms. It is done by reconnecting the traumatized person in a safe, controlled way to the thoughts, images, and emotions associated with the trauma, and allowing the natural healing powers of the brain to move toward adaptive resolution.
EMDR is founded on the theory that symptoms occur when negative experiences overwhelm the brain's natural ability to heal. Treatment is done using bi-lateral stimulation while helping a patient work through the negative experience, while in a safe location of a therapist's office.
