EMDR and sex therapy
Over the past 15 years, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) has been used to effectively treat the pain and dislocation caused by such trauma as rape. Research has repeatedly shown EMDR to be effective in the treatment of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and it has been accepted as efficacious by a number of organizations in the trauma field. EMDR is an integrative, psychotherapeutic approach that assumes that information is processed and stored on a number of different dimensions: sensory, cognitive, affective, and psychological. EMDR assumes the existence of an adaptive information processing system that digests life experiences and integrates them as needed most of the time.
