Did you know that your eye movements could free you from all the trauma and pain? Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, or EMDR for short, is a unique type of psychotherapy proven to help people recover from trauma and improve the quality of their lives.
On today’s episode, Duane speaks with Dr. Deborah Korn and Michael Baldwin, co-authors of Every Memory Deserves Respect: EMDR, the Proven Trauma Therapy with the Power to Heal.
Deborah is a clinical psychologist with a private practice in Cambridge, Massachusetts. She is on the faculties of the EMDR Institute in California and the Trauma Research Foundation in Boston. Deborah presents and consults internationally on the treatment of adult survivors of childhood abuse and neglect.
Michael is an accomplished leader in the communications industry with more than 35 years of award-winning work in advertising. He is the founder and principal of the branding and communication firm Michael Baldwin Inc, in New York. Michael is a trauma survivor actively engaged in the process of recovery through EMDR therapy.
Both Deborah and Michael bring their experiences together to write this book, which they will talk about today. They’re sharing valuable insights into the process of EMDR and how it can be helpful for anyone struggling with trauma.
In this episode, you will hear:
- How EMDR works
- The desensitization effect of bilateral stimulation
- How memories of trauma are reactivated
- The “big-T” trauma events versus the “little-t” traumas
- What it looks like when you enter into EMDR therapy
