EMDR

EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. This form of PTSD therapy is relatively new and not as well understood as other types. Nonetheless, it appears to be effective in treating PTSD. EMDR therapy has patients think about their traumatic memories while also paying attention to unrelated stimuli such as eye movements, sounds, or hand tapping. Rhythmic stimulation is thought to counteract the negative “freezing” effect that stress has on the brain’s information processing centers. Just as with other PTSD therapies, EMDR attempts to alter the way the patient reacts to memories of his or her trauma.
