What is Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)?
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is an extensively-researched, integrative psychotherapy proven effective for trauma treatment.
By directly affecting how the brain processes information, EMDR helps people see traumatic memories in new, less distressing ways.
Who is eligible for EMDR?
EMDR therapy is designed for individuals who have experienced traumatic events or life changes that have severely impacted their quality of life. EMDR is commonly utilized by:
- First-line responders
- Active military and veterans
- Trauma victims
- Cancer patients and survivors
- Victims of natural disasters
- People suffering from:
- PTSD and other anxiety disorders
- Severe and Persistent Mental Illness (SPMI)
- Substance Use Disorder
How can I join?
If your current therapist or health care provider feels that you could be served by EMDR, they can contact an EMDR program coordinator at (402) 342-7007 to begin the referral process. Your provider will be asked to complete a client questionnaire and referral form.
Can I keep seeing my current therapist?
Yes, you can! Through our adjunctive therapy program, our EMDR-trained therapist will work with you for six to eight sessions specifically for EMDR therapy while you continue to work alongside your primary therapist.
