Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)

LSAS clients have the option to integrate EMDR into their sessions with a certified practitioner. EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing and is a therapy model that understands that our emotions and our bodies are intertwined. As such, EMDR uses bilateral stimulation in the form of eye movements or tones to help process and move memories that have been incorrectly stored to the appropriate part of the brain helping to lessen emotional and physical responses to the memory. Many EMDR practictioners use this therapy in conjucntion with traditional talk therapy for a wide variety of client concerns.

EMDR has been recognized by the WHO as an effective treatment for PTSD and other trauma related concerns, like sexual violence. The benefits may include:

  • Increase in self-esteem
  • Decrease in depression symptoms, anxiety, panic attacks, and stress
  • Quicker results than traditional talk therapy
  • Aids in processing unresolved trauma
  • Utilizes the body’s natural processing system
