How does EMDR work? Each of us has two different memory networks: adaptive and non-adaptive. Adaptive memories are needed to react to current circumstances; for example, you see a car speeding toward you and your body automatically reacts to the fear of being hit. When the accident is over, these memories should get stored away into your nonadaptive memory. A problem occurs when a memory gets stuck, or frozen, in our adaptive memory, causing us to have responses that are no longer appropriate to the situation.
EMDR takes those experiences lodged in our adaptive memory, and moves them into our non-adaptive memory, where they belong. It has been proven to be highly successful in the treatment of many anxiety disorders including performance anxiety, stress management, social anxiety, phobias, panic attacks, and PTSD.
An increasing number of studies are emerging which prove that mindfulness-based cognitive therapy is an effective strategy for the treatment of anxiety.
