EMDR: Is it for you?

EMDR: Is it for you? | EMDR | Scoop.it

In doing this, little islands are created in our brains ... isolated neuro-networks ... of old painful memories. Sealed within these memories are childish and inaccurate perceptions and judgments about the events, about who we are, and about life itself. For example, an adult may have isolated memories about the death of a favorite pet from his/her preschool years. These might be stored in the brain along with feelings of anger, sadness, and guilt.

This is a simple explaination of EMDR with an island metaphor for understanding how difficult experiences get separated from the rest of our brain and distort the MAP of how we see ourselves.

A recent share by an EMDR client named Amy has inspired this article.  Here is what she said:

I am amazed with my results from EMDR. 

Overwhelmed with anxiety and panic on a daily basis, I thought I was out of options. I had been to talk therapy regularly, but with little to no improvement. That all changed when I began seeing my EMDR Therapist. EMDR is successful because it works with your brain; how your brain stores trauma, and the ripple down effects of untreated trauma (ie: anxiety and panic.) 

Upon meeting my new EMDR therapist, I was diagnosed with PTSD. My panic attacks were directly related to my PTSD triggers. It was such a relief to hear this diagnosis.

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.
