EMDR side effects – As with anything and everything in life, there is always a side effect, but in the case of this particular therapy, their is not much to talk about:
- It has been noted that patients that underwent the treatment hd distressing and unresolved memories which may emerge occasionally.
- Some unexpected results may occur during or after therapy that was not part of the plan, reactions like having a high level of sensitivity or emotions or some physical sensations.
- Subsequent to the treatment session, the processing of incidents/material may continue, and other dreams, memories feelings, etc., may emerge.
After speaking with one of the EMDR therapist at work, I was told that the stages involve in the process include taking the patient to his/her happy place before embarking on the treatment. It’s also been noted that some patients could not be treated with this reprocessing technique, which so far has a low percentage rate. That would not surprise me as I know every form of medication in life has it’s pros and cons, which in turn are the side effects. The journey to resolve ptsd and/or abusive memory is just beginning.
