If you suffer from anxiety, depression, PTSD, and other conditions, you need to find a way to deal with the stress in your life. Some of the symptoms can be debilitating, and they can cause you ongoing strife. One of the best methods of treatment is called Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing therapy, known as EMDR. EMDR therapy in CT is a safe and effective approach to treating trauma.
What is EMDR Therapy?
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is a method of integrative psychotherapy that includes 8 phases. We consider EMDR therapy in CT as the best method of treatment of trauma. The goal of EMDR therapy is to help you move past your traumatic experience and learn new ways to deal with past events. It teaches you better ways to face trauma in the future. We utilize eye movement stimulation to desensitize the brain’s processing of thoughts that are related to the trauma. In this way, the neuropsychologist helps to retrain your brain’s reactions to the thoughts of trauma and stress.
Adaptive Information Processing
Adaptive information processing, AIP, is the foundation of EMDR therapy in CT. It is essential to know that traumatic memories are different than typical memories. The brain stores traumatic memories differently, and therefore, it is necessary to treat them uniquely. Sensory memories include both physical and emotional parts. These memories are distinctive from other types of memories. Therefore, standard forms of treatment are not effective in treating trauma. EMDR is found to be the most effective method of dealing with trauma. The first step of the process is to evaluate your needs to develop a treatment plan.
How Does EMDR Therapy in CT Work?
EMDR therapy in CT includes 8 phases. The first phase is evaluation and planning. During the preparation phase, you will be taught skills that you will need during treatment. The assessment phase identifies your thought patterns in regards to the trauma. Next, you will participate in reprocessing. Then, we use guided recall and other methods to desensitize your reaction to trauma. The installation process gives you ways to establish positive beliefs. We conduct a body scan for signs of distress. At the end of the session, we leave you with a comfortable feeling, and then we reevaluate and reassess stress due to the trauma. This type of therapy is extremely effective. The number of sessions you need will depend on the trauma and your progress through treatment.
