Eye Movement, Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
Another evidence-based treatment, EMDR, may be used as an alternative to or adjunct with Prolonged Exposure. While St Louis DBT’ therapists are trained to use EMDR, they find Prolonged Exposure integrates more readily into DBT. For this reason, PE is given preference over EMDR. Clients who want EMDR are welcome to talk to their individual therapist about using this approach. Go here for more information about EMDR.
