“The professionals at Hospice of Santa Barbara strive to provide the highest level of service to clients by offering effective, cutting-edge therapies,” Kenny Slaught notes, praising the organization. “Dealing with grief and loss is extremely difficult, but a new therapy has emerged to help individuals through difficult times.” People dealing with PTSD undergo overwhelming and painful emotions whenever they remember a past trauma, similar to those dealing with loss and grief. EMDR allows these negative emotions to be mitigated. EMDR involves the practice of dual stimulation—both bilateral eye movements and tones or taps, during which clients recall past traumas in a safe environment while focusing on the external stimulus. Practitioners then assist clients in finding insight about the difficult emotions and make more positive associations with current triggers.
