Being a professional mental health therapist, you will appreciate more than anyone just how debilitating and life-changing psychological trauma can be. Indeed, patients suffering with conditions like Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) can be so adversely affected that their lives can effectively fall to pieces; therefore it is only natural you will want to do all you can to help.
Learning about EMDR treatment can help you to do this.
Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) is one of the most revolutionary developments within the field of mental trauma treatment of the last 35 years. The basic premise of EMDR is that the intensity of feelings associated with a particularly distressing or upsetting memory can be reduced (or sometimes even eliminated altogether) by using specific eye movements. When carried out by a suitably qualified therapist, EMDR treatment can adjust and/or restore the way a patient’s brain functions, thereby enabling them to eventually address and override their mental trauma issues. Most patients who undertake successful EMDR treatment end up being able to recall their memories without experiencing the same degree of psychological distress they did before treatment began.
So now you’re most probably thinking: ‘this all sounds great: but how do I as a mental health professional learn how to treat mental trauma with EMDR?’
Well, the fact that this type of psychological treatment is highly specialised means that you will need to learn EMDR from fully qualified professionals who are experts in their field. Indeed, you must learn (and sometimes re-learn) everything from the theoretical basics of mental trauma to the practical elements of administering treatment so well that you will be able to adapt your current skill set with relative ease once you are finished.
Fortunately, we here at EMDR Works can help you to achieve this.
