Group EMDR Therapy
What is a EMDR Therapy?
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a highly effective, evidence-based treatment for treating trauma and other mental health conditions
EMDR is a semi-structured therapy where a client is asked to briefly focus on a traumatic event while a trained therapist introduces bilateral stimulation to facilitate and support the brain’s natural information processing mechanisms. This allows information that is “stuck” to be properly digested and integrated into adaptive memory networks. Learn more about EMDR therapy here: emdria.org
