Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing
WHAT IS IT?
EMDR Intensives are a cutting edge intervention that condenses the benefits of traditional EMDR into a shorter time frame.
Clients can schedule 4-7 hours per day over the course of 1-3 days of targeted EMDR therapy focused on a specific goal. One half day of EMDR intensive work can provide the same benefit as one month of weekly EMDR therapy
WHO CAN IT HELP?
Individuals with single event trauma
Those who have a specific trauma memory preventing therapy progress
Those with time constraints that make weekly therapy difficult
Coordination with current therapist is possible with client's release of information.
WHO SHOULD NOT PARTICIPATE?
Anyone with current safety concerns
Those with recent hospitalizations for mental health
Current suicidal ideation (can be referred by therapist)
Those with significant structural dissociation may not get as much out of an EMDR intensive.
Cost: $750 for one half day, $1500 for one full day
Insurances: Most insurances don't cover intensives at this time
