Q: What is EDMR?

A: EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. During trauma, our brain processes, and stores memories incorrectly and that can lead to earlier memories feeling very present. Related or unrelated actions in the present can lead to people reacting as they did at the time of trauma. The brain feels as if the past painful event is taking place currently.

EMDR therapy adjusts this mis-storage so that the painful memories associated with the trauma lose their intense power. The person can then respond to things in the present without past experiences impeding.
