Cope With Your Most Traumatic Moments with EMDR

If your life has been altered by a traumatic event, or if you suffer from certain disabilities that can’t be traced back to specific physical issues then EDMR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) therapy may be a solution for you.

Do you suffer from symptoms such as panic attacks, certain events that cause extreme nervousness, intense periods of that make you out of breath or sweaty? Or do you get angry for no good reason, practice self abuse, substance abuse, fighting, loss of interest in your goals, difficulty making decisions or general self abuse?

If any of these symptoms are habitual and you have no reasonable explanations for them then you may be suffering from a hidden psychotrauma from the past. Many obvious psychotraumas coming from such events such as witnessing injuries or deaths, assaults, rape, potential lethal injuries, sexual abuse or any other threats to your well being. Most of these can be diagnosed easily through typical psychotherapies.

But when there is sometimes no obvious event that stands out yet you still have the symptoms of a traumatic event then you may need to try a new therapy that goes beyond the traditional. EMDR is just such a process.

EMDR is a wide-ranging psychotherapeutic method to solving many of today’s toughest psychological problems without taking months or even years of traditional therapy. It draws from many traditional protocols used to maximize treatment effects but does so in a streamlined process to get to the root of your anxieties sooner rather than later.

EDMR testing and therapies use a variety of processes designed to help your doctor uncover your entire psycho-clincal situation. It evaluates the life changing events in your past which may have triggered certain current day anxieties. In many cases these life changing events are hidden or never consciously considered to be as such, yet they lay there in the deep confines of your memories. And those events have a huge impact on the person you are at this moment.

One real-life example of EDMR in action was outlined by Stephan Tobin Ph.D. It shows the power of EMDR to help a trauma survivor work through certain post traumatic disorders at a faster pace than is typically seen by traditional psychotherapies.

The client came in with a variety of symptoms and problems: Tired both physically and emotionally, feelings of failing, anger for no good reason and constant procrastination. It should be mentioned that this client was visiting New York on 9/11 and very close to the World Trade Centers when the terrorist event took place. While this event may have been enough in and of itself to cause all the symptoms, the client’s EDMR sessions revealed a variety of additional issues that were affecting the their actions and judgment. And just as importantly the EDMR therapy made amazing progress in only three sessions.

EMDR is supported by actual clinical trials and is the most researched psychotherapeutic treatment for post traumatic stress disorder. Studies have shown that EMDR was found to be a superior treatment over biofeedback relaxation, active listening and group therapy.

If you’re like most people you know very little about the EMDR process but may be intrigued about the little you have heard. Maybe you feel you have some of the symptoms that have been mentioned above. Or possibly you have tried other psychotherapy methods that have not worked for you.

Francine Shapiro Ph.D. is the originator of EMDR which has been so well researched that it is now recommended as an effective treatment for trauma in the Practice Guidelines of the American Psychiatric Association and those of the Departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs.

The Discover EMDR program is designed to provide an in-depth inauguration into the field of Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. This four module audio book presented by Dr. Steve G. Jones is an unbiased look at this unique therapy.

Since Dr. Jones doesn’t offer the therapy himself you can be assured that there are no hidden agendas as he examines the various aspects of the process. What you will find is a complete assessment of the reasons to consider EMDR and what the benefits can be for you and your loved ones for today and the future.

You’ll hear about the eight different phases of EMDR and get a full explanation of what happens during each phase. With that kind of information you can make a more educated decision on whether EMDR is for you.

If you DO decide that EMDR therapy is for you, then you will value the twelve different questions you need to ask your potential therapist. Once you know the answers to these you will be at your highest comfort level throughout the EMDR process.

If you’ve ever gone through therapy then you know how expensive just ONE Session can be. The Discover EMDR program is designed to eliminate the examination phase of the therapy process which can take as many as 2-3 sessions which could cost you thousands of dollars, depending on your therapist. With the Discover EMDR program you will be able to make an educated decision and move right into therapy.
