This article by Dr. Marshall Wilensky summarizes some current research in EMDR: 

  • Researchers in the Human Resource Institute’s Trauma Center (Brookline, MA) have been using SPECT brain-scan imaging to map changes that occur from EMDR treatments. They found that traumatic material appears to be held in the right parietal region, which is concerned with body states and is mostly nonverbal. Following EMDR, areas of the left frontal regions that have to do with verbal processing and future planning come back online. Although the brain has a natural mechanism for processing disturbing events, when a traumatic experience is overwhelming, the brain may not be able to process it in the same way. This is why severely traumatized people often find themselves struck with disturbing memories long after the traumatic event. Research suggests that an important part of the natural trauma processing happens during rapid eye movement (REM) sleep, which provides alternating stimulation of the right and left hemispheres of the brain. This may help explain why EMDR therapy seems to jump-start the brain’s natural healing ability, allowing the traumatic memory to become less and less disturbing.

Gingko App - For collaborative writing

Gingko App - For collaborative writing | EMDR | Scoop.it

Since Gingko is tree-based, one person can work on the overall organization, while a second is writing the main points of a particular section, and a third is taking those points and fleshing them out in a subsection.

Very good app for long documents. You could work in a 3 tree level, allowing you to conect between levels, add links, pics, etc... quite user-friendly.

Need to try out this tool, looks exciting!

Now that I've discovered the wonderful Gingko App, my writing (and pre-writing) is not going to be the same again.

EMDR can be quite helpful with many individuals going through a divorce and healing from the leftover hurt and pain of the relationship. Going through a divorce can be a traumatic experience and clearing triggers associated witht he marriage can alter the interaction post-divorce.

PTSD and EMDR - A New Chapter in Healing

PTSD and EMDR - A New Chapter in Healing | EMDR | Scoop.it

As I write this, I remember the original experience and the EMDR experience and yet energetically it has changed for me for the positive.  Through the EMDR I came to understand that the shame and condemnation was not mine to carry.  I was just a little girl and she the parent.  Her job was to teach and lead.  Children don’t have the ability to think through things.  I was a little girl, with a little girl’s brain and a little girl’s body.

 

I am grateful for the experience of healing through this and while I don’t look forward to going back into the memories, I look forward to reprogramming the brain through EMDR so I am free from the effects and triggers of the memory.
