EMDR for Trauma – How Does EMDR Therapy Work?
Trauma is an event or experience that cause intense stress. Many events can cause trauma, including an accident, assault, harassment, unhealthy relationships, negative family dynamics, verbal abuse, racism, and witnessing violence.
These types of traumatic events can be so difficult and severe, that our minds have trouble processing them. Reminders of the event or thinking about the event can also trigger flashbacks, panic attacks, or reliving the event. That makes it very difficult for people to process it on their own.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, also called EMDR, offers a scientifically proven, safe and effective treatment for reducing symptoms such as flashbacks, anxiety attacks, and nightmares. Many patients experience some relief after their first session.
Steps for EMDR
EMDR works by allowing you to relive triggering experiences in a safe environment under the care of your trauma therapist, who helps you stay calm and teaches you to make the event less triggering. While this is happening, you’ll be focusing on external stimuli such as eye movements, hand taps or tones. This simple exercise can help to reframe your associations with the traumatic event.
A traumatic event can lead to a loss of memory as your mind tries to protect you from painful thoughts and emotions. It can also cause thoughts that reminder you of the event to be too terrifying to process. This can cause feelings of confusion, helplessness, and extreme anxiety that makes it difficult to function after a traumatic event.
Through EMDR, our therapists can help you finally and fully process the event while also learning not to fear the triggers. It’s a very effective technique that results in less anxiety and less stress, and a better quality of life.
