Improving lives: EMDR psychotherapy for people with I/DD experiencing trauma and distress

Description

EMDR does not require insight, language, or intellect to reprocess the traumatic retained memories.

EMDR can be implemented without language and can integrate expressive therapies including art therapy and play therapy techniques.

EMDR is efficacious because treatment rapidly accesses the natural adaptive information processing system for healing.
