What is EMDR?
- Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) is an innovative, evidence-based form of psychotherapy.
- It has proven effective in treating mental health disorders and co-occurring addiction.
At Trafalgar, we incorporate EMDR into our accredited treatment programs when it is applicable to our clients in Toronto and Ontario treatment centres.
This treatment method helps our clients build the strongest possible foundation for lasting recovery.
Function of EMDR
Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) functions differently from other forms of talk therapy.
The process focuses on the client’s emotional and psychological responses to memories of traumatic experiences. With guidance from their therapist, the client is enabled to process their responses without becoming overly distressed or resistant.
