How does EMDR work?
EMDR uses natural function of the body to process and heal blocked emotions or memories. During sleep (REM) the human mind uses rapid eye movement and bilateral stimulation to process daily emotional experiences, but sometimes when the emotions are to extreme, the process brakes down.
In therapy, bilateral stimulation (eye movement, tapping, bilateral tones, etc.) is used to simulate that processing and shifting of thoughts and feelings about the unpleasant/disturbing experiences.
EMDR process weakens the effect of emotional charge, distress and negative beliefs and the relief from them can be quite rapid.
Throughout the process, the client is alert and in control and therapist uses a set of procedures, general questions and rating of disturbance level. There is no need for the client to explain the experiences in detail.
The effects of EMDR
Brain scans have shown pre-post changes after EMDR treatment that include increases in hippocampus volume (implications for storing memories) as well as profound and efficient change in clinical state of the clients.
What happens during an EMDR session?
EMDR session takes between 60-90 minutes.
In first session the therapist collects history of disturbing experiences, emotions, negative cognitions and symptoms. The client does not have to share detailed description of trauma but just a general explanation of what happened. Current coping skills and resources used by clients are also identified.
Therapist will introduce the client to new safety resources like: “The Container”, “Safe/Calm Space”, grounding techniques and explain the process of EMDR therapy.
Secondary, and any following sessions, will include procession of disturbance. EMDR processing can take between 2-6 sessions, depending on complexity of trauma.
You might be asked in your initial assessment to bring comforting objects (blankets, sensory objects, essential oils, etc.), anything that might help with comforting during the processing.
Please do not struggle in silence!
