EMDR: (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a psychotherapy that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences. EMDR therapy shows that the mind can heal from psychological trauma much as the body recovers from physical trauma. The trauma can be remembered but without the emotional charge that once accompanied the event. In twenty-four randomized controlled trials, EMDR therapy was shown to have positive effects in the treatment of emotional trauma and other adverse life experiences. Seven of 10 studies reported EMDR therapy to be more rapid and/or more effective than trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy.
CBT: (Cognitive behavioral therapy) helps with depression, anxiety, and a wide range of other problems. CBT is a form of psychotherapy that focuses on how a person’s thoughts, beliefs, and attitudes affect their feelings and behaviors. Unhelpful ways that people think can lead to psychological problems.
DBT: (Dialectical behavior therapy) focuses on changing one’s thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors. DBT is an evidence-based psychotherapy that began with efforts to treat borderline personality disorder. DBT has been proven useful in treating mood disorders, suicidal ideation, and for change in behavioral patterns such as self-harm, and substance abuse.
