Frequently Asked Questions


What is EMDR?


EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing and it is a therepeutic approach that has been empirically valididated as one of the most effective treatments for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). One of the trademarks of this type of treatment is an integration of physiological stimuli (eye movements, auditory stimuli or taps on the palms) with the mental and emotional reprocessing of memories and triggers. Through this integration, people are often able to achieve insights or new associations and are sometimes able to progress through therapy more rapidly.
