How does EMDR therapy work?

In the video provided, Jordan Vyas-Lee explains the process in EMDR therapy where the patient actively reprocesses challenging memories that lie at the core of their distress.

The duration of EMDR varies depending on the individual and the specific issue being addressed. Some individuals may experience significant relief in just a few sessions, while others may require more extensive treatment. The therapist will work with the client to determine the appropriate length of therapy.

Yes, EMDR therapy can be adapted for use with children and adolescents. Trained EMDR therapists use age-appropriate techniques and modifications to make the therapy accessible to younger individuals who have experienced trauma or distressing events.

EMDR therapy is generally considered safe and well-tolerated. However, some individuals may experience temporary distress as they process traumatic memories. It’s important to work with a qualified therapist who can provide guidance and support throughout the process.

EMDR therapy can be used in conjunction with other therapeutic approaches, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) or medication, depending on an individual’s needs. It’s essential to discuss treatment options with a mental health professional to determine the most appropriate combination for your specific situation.

1. History Taking: In this initial stage, the therapist gathers information about the client’s personal history and the specific issues they want to work on.

2. Preparation: The therapist establishes a therapeutic relationship, explains the EMDR process, and helps the client develop coping skills for emotional regulation.

3. Assessment: The therapist identifies target memories and the negative beliefs associated with them, setting the focus for EMDR processing.

4. Desensitization: During this phase, clients process distressing memories using bilateral stimulation (typically eye movements), reducing their emotional charge.

5. Installation: Positive beliefs and self-assurances are “installed” to replace the negative beliefs related to the traumatic memories.

6. Body Scan: Any residual physical tension or distress is addressed, ensuring the entire experience is processed and integrated.

7. Closure: The therapist helps the client return to a state of emotional stability at the end of each session.

8. Reevaluation: In this final stage, the therapist reviews the progress made, ensuring that all aspects of the issue have been adequately addressed and processed.

Yes, EMDR treatment is considered a suitable and effective therapy for individuals suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
