EMDR: How it Works

One of the primary keys to relieving the anxiety that comes with trauma is for the victim to talk about it.  The person needs to repeat what happened over and over again, and with the retelling, the emotions become more manageable.

Here’s a rather clinical video talking about why EMDR works.  You may find it a bit dull, but it really does a good job of describing the theory behind EMDR:

Here’s another one that talks about the way the brain reacts to trauma by creating habits of “fight or flight” that result in anxiety, depression, and PTSD.  I found it very interesting, if a bit long.

And with both these videos, I think I’ve given  you enough to think about today 🙂  We’ll continue the topic next Friday.
