Enhancing Resilience with EMDR Therapy

Enhancing Resilience with EMDR Therapy

As EMDR therapists, an important question is “How can we understand and support our client’s resiliency?” A fundamental tenet of the Adaptive Information Processing (AIP) model that informs the EMDR approach is trust in the human body and brain’s innate capacity. The human brain is continuously processing current and past experiences and integrating this information into existing innate and learned neurological structures, all in the service of meeting a range of human needs and wants. That is a lot to do! EMDR therapy can enhance resilience in many ways. As therapists, we can help clients build, recover, and strengthen resilience. And when our clients sense their true resilient nature, EMDR therapists can help them ride this quality as they create the lives they want and address the personal and societal issues ahead.

I am part of a new generation of budding mental health therapists whom our professors classify as resilient due to our ability to navigate the stressors of this time… but with one eyebrow raised and a squint… faint murmurs of “mmmm… I wonder how they will turn out?”

What is Resilience Anyway?

What is Resilience Anyway?

Resilience is a quality that we have grappled with, demonstrating, teaching, and living it for the past year. These are challenging times. This virus has turned our world upside down. It’s one thing to “bounce back” from single adversity, but what does it take to “bounce forward” into an unpredictable time frame and into an unpredictable future? Healthy therapist self-care, and client care, can include using Well-Being Theory and Positive Psychology interventions to support healthy, adaptive responses to challenges in the U.S.
