WHAT IS EMDR?

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a powerful psychotherapy approach that has treated millions of people of all ages and cultures who had suffered from many types of psychological distress.

EMDR therapy is a unique integrative psychotherapy approach that has been extensively researched and proven effective for the treatment of trauma. EMDR is a set of standardized protocols that incorporates elements from many different treatment approaches.

What kind of problems can EMDR treat?

Scientific research has established EMDR as effective for post traumatic stress.  However, clinicians also have reported success using EMDR in treatment of the following conditions:

  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Panic Attacks
  • Complicated Grief
  • Dissociative Disorders
  • Disturbing Memories
  • Phobias
  • Pain Disorders
  • Performance Anxiety
  • Stress Reduction
  • Addictions
  • Sexual and/or Physical Abuse

EMDR is designated as an effective treatment by the the World Health Organization (WHO), American Psychiatric Association,  the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and Department of Defense, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), among others.

RESEARCH

Dr. Quinn developed the Emergency Response Procedure (ERP) over the course of a number of years of crisis response volunteer work in Emergency Rooms. The full protocol and its rationales were published by Dr. Marilyn Luber in her book: Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Scripted Protocols: Basics and Special Situations.

Based on this procedure Dr. Quinn trained a special psycho-trauma Hatzalah Unit to deal with with the immediate psychological aftermath of traumatic events. For more information on this unit, follow this link..
