EYE-MOVEMENT DESENSITIZATION & REPROCESSING

Eye-Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDRTM) is a specific therapeutic skill developed to assist traumatized individuals in relieving themselves of their PTSD symptoms.  St. Joseph's Children's Home therapists with Level II training in EMDR provide this technique as a meaningful adjunct to individual therapy sessions with many residents whose referring issues include past trauma.  In this fashion, EMDR has been utilized with carefully selected residents of all ages and both sexes over the past twelve years.
