The evolution of EMDR: From technique to psychotherapy – Implications for clinical practice
Since Dr. Shapiros first publication on EMD the technique evolved to a comprehensive therapy – EMDR Therapy. EMDR Therapy consists of theory (AIP Model), description of a comprehensive therapy and offers different treatment plans as well as a number of techniques for memory processing or resource enhancement. EMDR basic training offers training on application of techniques to reprocess or modify memories and ideas on treatment planning, but leaves the therapist quite often confused regarding the complexity of EMDR Therapy. A concept of six levels in EMDR Therapy offers an easy to comprehend structure to understand the complexity of EMDR Therapy.
