What is an EMDR Intensive?
An intensive is a way to deliver treatment in an intensive but short period of time, typically 2-3 days and sometimes over a weekend, where multiple EMDR sessions per day are completed. New research shows that intensive therapy for trauma and stress can be extremely effective on symptom reduction. Our EMDR therapists are attachment focused, and have additional advanced trainings that incorporate dissociation, and Internal Family Systems along with Somatic Experiencing and Sensorimotor components to reduce acute symptoms.
At Infinite Healing and Wellness, we have a 5-hour minimum for an intensive; however, most people will attend for 4-6 hours a day for 2-3 days.
Research shows that clients completing intensive treatment can make as much progress in the condensed format as in standard weekly sessions. This can eliminate weeks or months of living with trauma symptoms, and with the toll this takes on work, relationships, marriages, parenting and general wellbeing.
Since sessions are completed over two or three days it can reduce lost work time.
While there is a larger upfront cost, the shorter duration of treatment over all can save money.
Intensives are being studied in the literature as a state-of-the-art modality for trauma.
Clients who are out of town or out of state can take advantage of access to excellent treatment quickly, making only one trip to the Phoenix area.
Local clients who have transportation issues or childcare complications can also plan for the single weekend. This eliminates the need to have ongoing help with children or rides to therapy.
EMDR Intensives will be held at our Phoenix or Gilbert Location - and on Motor Yacht Dopamine per request.
