SOMATIC EXPERIENCING
EMDR

EMDR is a phased, scientifically validated and integrative psychotherapy approach based on the theory that much of our emotional pain is due to disturbing life events. These result in the impairment of an individual’s innate ability to process and integrate the experience or experiences within the central nervous system. The core of EMDR involves activating components of an upsetting life event, and pairing those components with alternating bilateral or dual attention stimulation.  This process facilitates the resumption of balanced information processing and integration. This approach can result in the alleviation of presenting symptoms, diminution of distress from memory, improved view of the self, relief from bodily disturbance, and resolution of present and future anticipated triggers.  (EMDRIA Definition of EMDR Policy Reference 1.0)
