What is EMDR Therapy?

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) stands as a psychotherapeutic method involving guided eye movements or bilateral stimulation, specifically designed for the processing of traumatic memories. The core objective of EMDR is the mitigation of emotional distress intertwined with traumatic encounters. In conjunction with established therapeutic techniques like Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Vida Emotional Wellness takes pride in delivering this inventive treatment paradigm, thereby empowering clients to effectively confront and navigate their challenges.

Historical Context:

Developed by Francine Shapiro in the late 1980s.

Based on her discovery of positive effects of eye movements on disturbing thoughts.
