Most clinicians at Intuitus Group have some level of training in EMDR Therapy. Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy is a form of therapy based on the Adaptive Information Processing (AIP) model—both developed by Francine Shapiro. The AIP model utilizes our brain’s natural inclination toward health, and sees many emotional and mental health issues as being the result of unprocessed or maladaptively processed experience. By identifying and reprocessing pivotal experiences in the past, current struggles and symptoms diminish significantly.
The full protocol for EMDR Therapy involves:
- Identifying and processing the memories that set the foundation for the problem
- processing the current situation that triggers disturbance and
- incorporating the experiences into the memory networks that are necessary to overcome skill or developmental deficits.
