This group uses Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) techniques to help individuals process distressing and traumatic experiences. EMDR is an evidence-based integrative psychotherapy approach that alleviates emotional distress associated with upsetting experiences.

This group is appropriate for individuals who are motivated to engage in structured, short-term work to process distressing experiences, such as:

  • Physical violence
  • Sexual assault
  • Gender-based violence
  • Racial trauma
  • Birth trauma
  • Loss
  • Complicated grief
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Other traumas or upsetting experiences

This group will help you feel calmer, more resilient, and help you regain your balance. A unique feature of this group is that participants engage in highly personalized EMDR therapy while benefiting from the emotional support of a therapeutic group. You can read more about the EMDR approach here.
