EMDR with life-threatening medical illness
The relation between mind and body is more clearly understood than ever before. Stress reactions influence biological mechanisms such as immunity and inflammation that profoundly influence the course of medical conditions. PTSD is a predictor of ill-health. Powerlessness is associated with cancer progression. This presentation will review the mind-body connection in relation to severe illness, and the role of EMDR in helping patients facing lifethreatening diseases.
