A childhood of abuse, a lifetime of recovery
When it happened with Schley, she was introduced to a technique called eye movement desensitization and reprocessing or EMDR. The goal of EMDR is to help diminish the ongoing effects of distressing memories by engaging the brain's information processing methods, which then relieves the symptoms the patient is presently experiencing. "It was like finding the path that I needed to go down," she said about EMDR. "And then I could process, not just in my head but in my soul."
