EMDR

Have you or your child experienced a traumatic event? Is your child struggling to cope with grief, worry or memories of the event?

 

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is an integrative psychotherapy approach that has been extensively researched and proven effective for the treatment of trauma. EMDR is a set of standardized protocols that incorporates elements from many different treatment approaches.

EMDR Therapy has been applied to help children overcome traumatic events and other childhood problems and symptoms. When children are traumatized they lose a sense of control over their lives. This can result in symptoms of anxiety, depression, irritability, anger, guilt, and/or behavioral problems. Even common upsetting childhood events such as divorce, school problems, peer difficulties, failures, and family problems can deeply affect a child’s sense of security, self-esteem, and development.

EMDR Therapy is part of an integrated treatment approach and is often used in conjunction with other therapy practices such as play therapy, talk therapy, behavior therapy, and family therapy. EMDR Therapy will be explained and used when agreed upon by the family and child. Children and parents are always in control of the process.
