EMDR, or Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, is a psychotherapeutic method
developed by Francine Shapiro, Ph.D. and is extremely successful helping people who
struggle with a wide variety of emotional problems. EMDR therapy uses bilateral stimulation,
(either right/left eye movements, tactile stimulation, or right/left audio) which activates
the opposite sides of the brain, helping to release "trapped” emotional experiences in the
nervous system. This assists the neurophysiological system, the foundation of the mind/body
connection, to free itself of blockages and heal itself. As disturbing images and feelings
are processed through bilateral stimulation, resolution of the issue and a more peaceful
state are achieved.
When a person is involved or witnesses a traumatic or disturbing event, the sights,
sounds, thoughts and feelings are stored in the brain and body and are stored as memories.
Research has shown that a memory is initially formed using bilateral stimulation and occurs
naturally and automatically, but then becomes "trapped". When the person either recalls a
disturbing memory or encounters associated environmental cues (similar smells, tastes,
noises, etc. associated with the trauma), they re-experience the traumatic event through
a repetitive form of feeling (both emotional and physical), thinking and often behaving.
Through EMDR, the person is encouraged to think of the disturbing memory or event and
with bilateral stimulation, the memory which is "trapped” is able to be unlocked.
EMDR then uses the same process of bilateral stimulation to pair new feelings and
thoughts to the original event thereby leaving the person far less emotionally
distressed and freed from the disturbing associations of the memory.
EMDR can be used to help you work through a variety of situations ranging from poor
self esteem to depression to molest or rape. EMDR can be applied to almost every arena
and subject encountered in talk therapy, and almost always facilitates and enhances the
process. EMDR takes place during normal session time and consists of the client either
holding two small vibrating "tappers" or visually tracking something back and forth,
or listening to alternating tones, all which initiate bilateral stimulation. I then
ask them to recall certain events and memories and the process evolves as a combination
of me guiding my client and them informing me of what thoughts, feelings, beliefs and
physical sensations arise. Most of my clients enjoy using EMDR and ask for repeated
sessions. It can be emotionally intense, but the outcome is relieving and comforting.
