Questions and Answers:

What is EMDR?
EMDR stands for eye movement desensitization and reprocessing. It is a therapeutic approach and theoretical orientation developed by Francine Shapiro, Ph.D., in 1987.

EMDR Therapy helps the client and the EMDR Therapist identify key issues and related important memories, both recent and past. Through the use of EMDR and adaptive information processing (AIP), the client is able to heal these memories and re-work his/her approaches to current and future life in order to become more comfortable and happy. In addition, it is possible to strengthen oneself through "Resource Development and Installation" (RDI) so that each person can feel more effective in addressing life's challenges.

What is CBT?
CBT stands for cognitive-behavioral therapy. In CBT, the emotions, thoughts, and behaviors are considered to affect one another. Thus, if a client makes a change in any of these components of CBT, then the other components will change. For example, a helpful new perspective, or thought, may result in happier emotions and more positive and beneficial behaviors.

The CBT Therapist and the client work together to maximize the client's quality of life by addressing the client's thoughts, emotions, and behaviors and ascertaining how these might be enhanced. New perspectives and new behaviors often result in more positive emotions and a greater enjoyment of life.
