From Help For Our Heroes Program website, “EMDR International Association (EMDRIA) noted “Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a form of therapy that helps people heal from trauma or other distressing life experiences (2018). This therapeutic approach has been researched, and has proven effective in alleviating, reported experiencing of symptoms related to, trauma (EMDR, 2018). The therapeutic relationship involves a, and a trained, certified, or consultant of, EMDR, usually masters level, or higher, and often licensed, mental health professional. EMDR is a three pronged, past, present, and future, 8 phases treatment approach. EMDR essentially, stimulates the mind and the brain, through the use of eye movements; to facilitate the continuation of (positive) information processing (Adaptive Information Processing) that paused, at the time, when the negative or traumatic memory event was experienced. EMDR is utilized to engage a past, present, or future, (selected) negative target image and a current negative belief, associated with a negative or traumatic memory/event, and pair it with a client identified, realistic and present, positive belief, coupled with decreased, or no negative disturbance in the body, while thinking of the traumatic target image/memory.”
