Giving a different meaning to a traumatic event
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, abbreviated to EMDR, is a therapy for people who suffer lasting effects from a shocking experience. Such as an accident, sexual abuse or an incident of violence. This manifests itself, for example, in anxiety, gloom or sleep problems.
EMDR is a short-term form of therapy. In cases of trauma following a single major event, people are often able to resume their daily activities after just a few sessions. In people who have experienced long-term trauma and more complex problems, treatment takes longer.
