EMDR Therapy in South Denver

Finding Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy in South Denver can be a challenge. It isn’t just about finding an EMDR therapist near me that has openings. It’s more of the goodness of fit between both the individual and the therapist. Even more so, it’s how the therapist integrates EMDR therapy into the sessions to help facilitate healing. This blog post will provide brief overviews of various EMDR protocols that an EMDR therapist can utilize to foster healing from trauma and/or overwhelm.

Feeling-State Protocol for Addiction

The feeling-state protocol for addiction targets specific emotions and feelings that influence addiction behaviors. This protocol can be effective in helping people reduce problematic behaviors to allow for trauma reprocessing in the future.

Desensitization of Triggers and Urge Reprocessing

This EMDR protocol targets specific cues and triggers that create urges to engage in addictive behaviors. Again, this type of protocol can help to decrease addictive behaviors someone has to support future reprocessing.

Recent Events Protocol

This protocol of EMDR helps people reprocess recent events that have not been consolidated to long-term memory. It usually takes about four to six months for memories to shift to long-term memories.

Standard EMDR Protocol

The standard protocol of EMDR therapy keeps reprocessing broad and allows for any cognitive associations to be integrated into reprocessing. This standard protocol is widely utilized to help people recover from past traumatic experiences(s).

Constricted ReprocessingTrauma symptoms can build over time. Find out how EMDR therapy can help you with your recovery process.

There are two forms of constricted processing utilized in EMDR. Constricted reprocessing works exactly how it sounds. The two forms of constricted EMDR reprocessing are Eye Movement Desensitization (EMD – most constricted) and Eye Movement Desensitization reprocessing (EMDr – slightly less constricted). EMD keeps cognitive associations focused on a chosen memory for reprocessing. EMDr allows for small cognitive deviations from the chosen memory for reprocessing.
