Duidelijke uitleg over wat EMDR is en hoe het werkt!
What is EMDR therapy and why combine it with Cognitive Behavior Therapy and biofeedback therapy?
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is multi-phase (8) form of therapy. It is based on the theory of information processing. Information processing theory says multiple elements (thoughts, feelings, images) of an experience are stored as memories in accessible and useful forms in the brain. However since emotions and cognitions are stored in different places in the brain…. what you know and what you feel are sometimes very different!
Thus, EMDR sessions focus on reprocessing the information associated with past, present or future experiences that are experienced in an overly emotional or negative way. These targeted experiences are often associated with pathologies such as phobias, panic disorder, PTSD and depression.
Emdr sessions involve tapping into present feelings and thoughts about past and future events by using:
- Body Sensations
- Negative cognitions*
