What Disorders Can Emdr Treat

EMDR was originally used only for PTSD, but has been found to be extremely valuable in treating a wide range of problems. Some conditions, such as attention deficit disorder with or without hyperactivity (ADD, ADHD), obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), bipolar disorder, and some types of mood and thought disorders may require continued medical treatment, but EMDR can usually significantly reduce impact by addressing the emotional trauma caused by living with these conditions.

A wide variety of experiences can cause lasting negative effects. It is not just the horrific experiences like rape, incest, murder, and war that leave life-long wounds. Even seemingly insignificant or ordinary events like embarrassment, rejection, criticism, or bullying can shape a person’s future. Children may be well fed and cared for, but still suffer from wounds of neglect, lack of affection, and lack of guidance. People tend to carry the effects of these problems into their marriages and their work. When early life experiences are reprocessed and events cleared of emotional content, most marriages and employment problems improve.

More advanced EMDR protocols are amazingly effective treating addictions such as smoking, substance abuse, shoplifting, compulsive gambling, sex addiction, hoarding, love addictions, and obsessions with porn and video games. Another advanced protocol can resolve many character and attachment disorders.
