Our Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) trained clinicians use experiential techniques to engage clients in dual attention: having clients focus on a negative mental image, belief, feeling or bodily sensation associated with trauma while also attending to some sort of additional stimulus. The additional stimulus is provided by the therapist or the participant is taught to create one. Its purpose is to establish a neutral experience so that the trauma can be experienced with less distress and successfully reprocessed.
