How EMDR Works- What You Should Know

How EMDR Works: What You Should Know [Encore Broadcast]
Featuring Dr. Stacy Raymond and Bonnie Rumilly, LCSW/EMT

Ever had recurring stressful memories, nightmares, or emergency calls that re-activated a traumatic event? First Responder therapists Dr. Stacy Raymond and Bonnie Rumilly, LCSW will be talking about EMDR, a powerfully effective way to take the charge out of stressful memories and reprocess them.

​​First responders are often placed in situations where they come into contact with traumatic situations that can cause emotional reactions and reactions to trauma. Because of this, many first responders suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Injury (PTSI).

EMDR is a method of therapy that specifically addresses the symptoms of PTSI. The goal of EMDR is to help the client to reconnect with his or her life by processing painful thoughts. First responders often have trouble talking about what they have witnessed, and are often reluctant to identify and seek help for their symptoms because of their role and the culture in their agencies. They may feel that they should be able to "tough it out" and keep going.

First responders with PTSI or other post-traumatic stress symptoms need to be aware that the symptoms they are experiencing are common and treatable. In this video we will discuss EMDR therapy with first responders and how it can help them overcome their traumas. Stacy and Bonnie will explain how EMDR works and how firefighters, police, EMS, dispatchers, and other first responders can find an EMDR therapist. You'll learn about the different types of therapy and what to expect from the EMDR process.

EMDR is being used by First Responders, the American Psychological Association, the DOD, the VA, the active military and is backed by scientific research. Stacy and Bonnie will explain how EMDR works and how firefighters, police, EMS, dispatchers, and other first responders can find an EMDR therapist.
