Hello Dr. Lynn,

What is your clinical opinion on EMDR, its effectiveness on behavior modification, motivation and phobias?
Do you know of any clinics in the Rockland or NJ area that do this type of therapy on a sliding scale?

Thank you, and Shana tova

Panda-
Sorry it took so long to get back to you. I have seen very good results with EMDR for trauma. Sometimes it works for phobias. I am not sure what you mean regarding behavior moification or motivation- could you explain? I am not aware of clinics that provide EMDR, but you can goto the EMDR.com website and find a clinician in your zip code who is certified. Some of those individuals may be willing to accept sliding scale. Let me know what happens.

Could you explain EMDR a little more? What kind of trauma does it work best for? It was suggested to me during my most recent hospitalization by the psych NP i was working with (but I was pretty skeptical of a lot of things she said....). I had intense, ongoing trauma...but I DO remember it.....is EMDR better for recovering memories? I have looked at the EMDR website (that's what the psych NP gave me) but didn't really feel like it explained how it might be better for me that the "regular" therapy I'm already in 3x/week...
thanks!

Sorry it took me so long to respond. When EMDR works, there is no comparison to regular talk psychotherapy. EMDR is more rapid and more effective, when it works. In my experience, it works best with single-episode traumas that occured during adulthood, in which the memories are vivid and disturbing. In cases where traumas occur over a long period of time and/or are not clear in mind, it can work, but the chances of success aree less. Please ask more if I did not cover your questions.
