Cognitive Processing Therapy
Similar to CBT, cognitive processing therapy is an evidence-based treatment that helps teach patients new, more positive ways of addressing trauma-related beliefs and emotions.
Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR)
is an evidence-based psychotherapeutic treatment used to alleviate distress from PTSD and traumatic memories. Hence, EMDR transforms the way the brain processes information. Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy has patients focus on their trauma while being visually stimulated. Thoughts, feelings, and physical sensations are activated while the stimulation helps reduce the emotion and physiological reaction to the trauma. Negative thoughts associated with the trauma can then be reprocessed with more empowered, positive and accepting beliefs.
