Kenny Slaught explains that clients of the Hospice of Santa Barbara are provided innovative therapies. While managing grief is challenging, there is a new therapy proved to assist people in overcoming difficult times. Those who have PTSD feel strong negative emotions when recalling a past trauma, just like people who are grieving. EMDR enables for these painful emotions to be processed. EMDR uses dual stimulation, a combination of bilateral eye movements and sounds. The client will focus on the trauma in a safe environment while paying attention to the external stimulus. Therapists will then aid individuals in mitigating the negative feelings and make different associations with the triggers they are experiencing.
