After experiencing a disturbing or traumatic event, individuals can experience distress.  The distress may have an immediate onset or it may take a few weeks or months to surface.  The distress can include such things as:

  •          Eating or sleeping too much or too little

  •        Pulling away from people and things

  •        Having low or no energy

  •        Feeling numb or like nothing matters

  •        Having unexplained aches and pains

  •        Feeling helpless or hopeless

  •        Smoking, drinking, or using drugs more than you should

  •        Feeling unusually confused or forgetful; on edge, angry, or upset; or worried and scared

  •        Yelling or fighting with family and friends

  •        Having thoughts and memories one can't get out of his/her head

  •        Thinking of hurting or killing oneself

  •        Unable to perform daily tasks like taking care of kids or getting to work or school.

Sometimes the trauma is accumulative, and sometimes it is a one-time event.  Either way, using an EMDR early intervention (EMDR EI) is a great way to get one's life back.  EMDR EI treatments are brief interventions that can be administered immediately after an incident or up to months later. The closer to an event the EMDR is administered, the less likely adverse reactions will result.  EMDR EI can be done individually or in a group setting.  Sharing of traumatic information doesn't have to be a requirement of treatment. 

 

EMDR EI procedures are known to reduce and/or eliminate symptoms of traumatic stress, depression, and anxiety, with results maintained at follow-up (usually about three months post-treatment).  EMDR EI’s are safe and effective, with individuals of all ages, genders, and varied nationalities and ethnicities. EMDR EI treatments can be administered on consecutive days, and/or multiple times a day. They can be used in disaster zones, hospitals, emergency rooms, schools, clinics, agencies, refugee camps, and private therapy practices.  EMDR EI interventions can also be viewed as efficient and inexpensive screening tools, providing a low intensity treatment that is adequate for the majority of sufferers, while simultaneously identifying individuals who require more intensive and costly treatment (https://www.emdr.org.il/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/White-Paper-9-April-2018-FinalRev.pdf).
