What Is EMDR Therapy Handout

Translation missing: en.products.product.view_full_details

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a type of therapy that helps people heal from the symptoms and emotional distress caused by disturbing experiences. Studies have shown that EMDR can lead to significant reductions in PTSD symptoms, with the percentage of people no longer diagnosed with PTSD varying widely from 36% to as high as 94%–95%.

The What Is EMDR Therapy Handout educates clients about what EMDR is, who it can help with, how it works, and its potential outcomes. The handout includes helpful illustrations that clarify key concepts and make the information more engaging for clients.

Through this handout, kids and teens may feel more willing to engage in the EMDR process. Parents and therapists can use it to facilitate discussions with young people in offices, clinics, and support groups. Encourage questions and discussions to address any concerns they may have about the topic.
