How EMDR Therapy Opens a Window to the Brain | Brain World | EMDR Therapy | Scoop.it

Over the past two decades, the use of eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) therapy has provided researchers and clinicians with the ability to observe how symptoms develop and can be rapidly treated. Over 20 randomized studies have demonstrated positive treatment effects, and EMDR has been declared an effective trauma treatment by organizations worldwide, including the American Psychiatric Association and the Department of Defense. Three randomized studies have demonstrated that 84 to 100 percent of those suffering from a single trauma no longer had posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) after an average of three 90-minute sessions. Changes that typically took months or years with other forms of therapy occurred within weeks. This rapidity allows both clients and clinicians to observe firsthand how the brain’s internal connections are made.

Trauma and the Body

Trauma and the Body | EMDR Therapy | Scoop.it

Many people suffer from either physical or emotional wounds that remain from a previous traumatic experience, and sometimes both. Trauma is defined as a serious injury or shock to the body, as from violence or an accident, or an event or situation that causes great distress and disruption. A traumatic experience can hijack the body and break down the connection between mind and body. We may not be able to connect rationally or articulate what we feel. In a recent interview Bessel van der Kolk, trauma expert at the Boston University School of Medicine explained...

What is EMDR?

What is EMDR? | EMDR Therapy | Scoop.it
by Marshall Wilensky “Until recently, psychologists thought trauma permanently altered brain chemistry. We now believe that eye movement somehow liberates the natural healing process to reverse such effects.
Dr. Amy Fuller's insight:

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.

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: Is it for you?

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

Dr. Amy Fuller's insight:

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.
