I want to say congratulations on the progress I am reading about the theraputic process for all of you. I am not an expert but have researched the value of EMDR as well as written a paper on it in grad school, and know there is enough science to support it and it can be highly effective for overcoming PTSD. I want to stress the importance of a qualified therapist who practices fidelity in doing the therapy. In other words they must be highly trained and skilled in that intervention. I also have heard from a psychologist who is certified in EMDR that it is not good for multiple traumas.. He lectured just a week ago and I recall it vividly. I guess I want to throw in a message of caring that it is wise to be certain the therapist is certified in EMDR therapy. And by codes of ethics, no therapist should ever engage in a treatment they are not fully trained in and comfortable and competant doing, regardless of the efficacy. I encourage you to ask direct questions about that training. But again, it is wonderful to hear that there is hope and there is help.
Be welll guys,
When you stumble, make it part of the dance.
