EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing.
It involves a process of bilateral stimulation of the brain hemispheres, by a variety of methods. These methods can include
- eye movements to the left and right
- an auditory tone delivered to each ear
- alternating vibration of each hand.
This procedure is known to have good potential outcomes, making important differences for clients struggling with long-standing issues around trauma, phobias, eating disorders, Autism, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), addictions and attachment disorder. The results vary from incremental, to profound shifts and - in some cases complete - turn-a-rounds.
Recent research suggests that EMDR is not only a workable option for managing stress disorders in people diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) but may also function as a basic therapy, to curb some of the standard symptoms of ASD.
Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing has a particular appeal for therapists and clients focusing on ASD because of relatively simple client interactions. Much like applied behaviour analysis (ABA), it involves the manipulation of a person’s physiological and psychological state through the consistent application of basic scientific principles.
Methodical and responsible EMDR therapy can be beneficial to people with autism by encouraging productive adaptations of various thought and behavioural patterns.
