About EMDR therapy training for therapists

EMDR is short for “eye-movement desensitisation and reprocessing”. It is a type of therapy that allows a person to focus on traumatic memories. This is undertaken while the therapist takes note of eye movements. These eye movements usually demonstrate the connection to these memories, including any emotion and vividness that are associated with them.

EMDR therapists are experts when it comes to helping clients process with traumatic memories. While the healing process may take a long time to get through, it allows patients the chance to confront memories that may be haunting them.

Originally, EMDR therapy was formulated in 1987 to help those suffering from PTSD to work through their traumatic experiences. It was found that unprocessed memories often contained triggers that could link to distress. That is why EMDR therapy is focused on going through these memories. It concentrates directly on changing how these memories are processed in the mind. If traumatic emotional connections can be decreased with the memories, this should help ease symptoms in the present, including anxiety, phobias, panic attacks and depression.

The reason why the eye is the focus of this therapy is due to the fact that eye movements, rhythms and stimulations are linked to quicker learning. A person will focus on the memories and work through them. If they can experience bilateral stimulation (BLS), it is very likely that the emotions and overall trauma of their memories can be lessened.

Let us know if you have any questions about our courses!

EMDR courses are very specific when it comes to their target audience. We would recommend that EMDR therapists watch them to continue their professional development. However, PTSD or trauma recovery therapists may also find them very useful. Narcissistic personality disorder specialists may also use EMDR to help their patients understand certain behaviours. These courses are perfect for both experienced therapists and those who are just starting their careers as mental health professionals.
