EMDR specialists as adjuncts to multi-discipline performance practice
There is evidence for the efficacy of eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) with athletes. Case studies will be used to demonstrate the value of a trauma and performance specialist trained in EMDR as an adjunct to a multi-disciplinary support team. Three multiteam situations will be discussed. The first includes military base personnel working to improve performance after trauma and, in some cases, transition to the private sector. The second is a behavioral medicine clinic with a focus on working with trauma hindering performance and performance anxiety. The third is a sport group utilizing a trainer, exercise physiologist, and nutritionist working with a community college basketball team.
