5 Reasons Why You Need to Do EMDR Training
May 21st, 2021
EMDR, or Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, was discovered by psychologist Francine Shapiro in the 1980s. This evidence-based therapeutic orientation focuses on the storage of memory as it may contribute to wellness or dis-ease. EMDR facilitates the reprocessing of memories that are “stuck and causing yuck”, to a point of adaptive resolution. As we continue to see a mental health crisis unfold within the United States, mental health professionals need to understand all of the resources accessible to them; including EMDR.
This is trauma-informed therapy, if done right and taught right. Reprocessing adversarial events is a crucial element to healing. And after 2020, this type of healing is needed all over the world. The more we can understand why EMDR is so important, the more we can help those moving through healing find their strength.
So here are 5 reasons you should consider getting EMDR trained as a therapist:
- It works! This is an evidence-based, popular, leading-edge therapy
- It can be done in-person or virtually
- It is beneficial for nearly every clinical presentation and any age
- It is effective in healing symptoms of PTSD, faster and better than other therapies
- It alleviates symptoms of anxiety, depression, chronic pain and insomnia
