In this episode, Al interviews Dr. Joyce Baptist, a professor in the Couple and Family Therapy Program at Kansas State University, on the topic of Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy (recorded 6-7-21).
Dr. Baptist's current work focuses on examining the efficacy of clinical interventions to mitigate suffering from traumatic childhood events using EMDR. Dr. Baptist describes EMDR and shares how a therapist uses EMDR to work with their clients.
Although EMDR is typically thought of as a therapy that is used for patients with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Dr. Baptist has conducted some very promising research on the use of EMDR for the treatment of depression.
Learn more about Dr. Baptist by visiting her page on the Kansas State University website. You can learn more about EMDR by visiting the EMDR International Association website.
