Benefits of EMDR Intensives

Updated: Jun 2, 2023

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) therapy is a widely recognized and effective treatment for individuals who have experienced traumatic events. While traditional EMDR therapy sessions can be helpful for many people, an EMDR intensive may be the next step in your trauma recovery journey.


What is an EMDR Intensive?

An EMDR intensive is a concentrated form of therapy that typically involves multiple sessions in a single day or over a period of a few days. These sessions can be conducted one-on-one or in a group setting. The goal of an EMDR intensive is to provide a more intense and focused therapy experience that can help individuals to process and resolve their trauma more quickly.


EMDR Intensives clear trauma at an accelerated pace.

One of the reasons why an EMDR intensive may be the next step in your trauma recovery is that it allows you to work through your trauma at a more accelerated pace. Traditional EMDR therapy sessions may take place once a week and may require multiple sessions to process and resolve a traumatic event fully. An EMDR intensive allows you to work through your trauma more quickly, which can be especially beneficial if you have been struggling with trauma for a long time.


EMDR Intensives are more immersive and therapeutic.

Another reason an EMDR intensive may be the next step in your trauma recovery is that it allows you to work through your trauma in a more immersive and therapeutic environment. During traditional EMDR therapy sessions, you’ll revisit traumatic events multiple times over the course of weeks or months. An EMDR intensive allows you to focus on your trauma in a more contained and supportive environment, which can be less overwhelming and more effective for some people.





EMDR Intensives are effective for multiple traumas or complex trauma.

Additionally, an EMDR intensive can be especially beneficial for individuals who have multiple

traumas or complex trauma. The intensive nature of the treatment allows the therapist to work through multiple traumas in a shorter period of time, and also allows you to process and resolve the trauma in a more holistic way.


EMDR Intensives are not appropriate for everyone.

It's important to note that an EMDR intensive is not appropriate for everyone and it is essential to have a thorough assessment with a trained EMDR therapist to determine if this approach is right for you.
