Post Traumatic Stress
Specialized training in Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is important for treating post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). EMDR has been identified as an effective therapy for reducing trauma symptoms, aiding in processing emotions around a traumatic event and releasing the distress associated with it. With appropriate EMDR training, counselors can better equip themselves to provide quality care to clients suffering from PTSD. The specialized techniques used in EMDR help reduce the intensity of distressing memories connected to the trauma while also allowing clients to move through their healing journey at their own pace. By learning how to use this powerful tool, counselors are better prepared to offer effective support and guidance throughout their client’s recovery process.
