Tools for Healing During and After a Cancer Diagnosis: Using EMDR as a Response to Trauma
Monday, May 9, from 6:30 pm-7:30 pm
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) originally was developed as a treatment approach for post-traumatic stress disorder. Evidence-informed psychotherapy that targets emotional distress and associated physical symptoms, EMDR can help reduce the physical and emotional distress of cancer and side effects successfully. Yvette Colón, PhD, BCD, LMSW, will focus on how EMDR works, its benefits, and how it can be useful to people who have been diagnosed with cancer.
