What is EMDR and How Can it Help With PTSD? EMDR stands for Eye Moment Desensitization and Reprocessing. EMDR is most often used as a treatment for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. EMDR enables people to heal from traumatic life events. During EMDR treatment, the person is asked to focus on a traumatic memory. The person then uses their eyes to track the therapist’s hand as it moves back and forth. As this happens, the person begins to process the memory and disturbing feelings. The meaning of a traumatic event is transformed on an emotional level. The person’s thoughts and feelings associated with the event are powerfully altered. The person is able to heal from the traumatic event because they have hyper-processed it. For more information about EMDR, check out our website! www.family-strategy.com
