EYE MOVEMENT DESENSITIZING REPROCESSING (EMDR)

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a theory that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of traumatic experiences.  Repeated studies show that by using EMDR therapy people can experience healing from trauma, as opposed to management of symptoms. EMDR theory believes that the brain is fully equipped to heal, it just needs some help getting there.  EMDR therapy shows that the mind can in fact heal from psychological trauma, much as the body recovers from physical trauma.

TRAUMA RELATED DISSOCIATION

Using the structural dissociation theory, therapists work with clients to achieve "integration" of the system. Trauma related dissociation is described as "a mental escape when a physical escape is not possible", as a way of helping a person distance themselves from a traumatic experience. However, the dissociative experience can occur when a person becomes extremely stressed, triggered or overwhelmed when the "system" cannot decipher perceived threat from actual danger.
