Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy may not be a term you’re familiar with, but it’s proving to be a very effective treatment for those who suffer from PTSD.
PTSD stands for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and affects roughly 12 million adults in America each year. It’s a trauma response that many people experience but just don’t know how to seek help for.
On this page you’ll find information about causes and symptoms of PTSD as well as an overview of the EMDR therapy process and how it can help those with PTSD.
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
About 6% of the population will experience PTSD, or Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, at some point in their lives, and women are twice as likely to deal with the effects of PTSD than men.
To gain a better understanding of why EMDR therapy is so effective in treating those with PTSD, it’s important to know what PTSD is, its causes, and its symptoms.
