EMDR Therapy

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a rather novel technique to address Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) offered at United Psychological Services. This therapy technique using eye movement has been found to be a successful method to break through the typically resistant emotional effects of trauma that prove difficult to reach using cognitive techniques or “talk” intervention. Research has shown the positive results of using this type of therapy to alter the mind/body connection and release the trapped emotions that become the symptoms of trauma which can keep individuals stuck through their lifetime. Disturbing images and feelings are processed and resolved with the goal of replacing anxiety and fear with positive thoughts.
