Relief from Traumatic Stress Using EMDR Therapy

Diagnostic and assessment issues will be reviewed as well as phase-oriented treatment methodology for acute stress, post- traumatic stress disorder, and complex PTSD. Case examples will be used to highlight how the adaptive information processing system (AIP) of the brain helps to process traumatic events to an adaptive resolution with EMDR.
Dr. Alter-Reid is a clinical psychologist based in Stamford specializing in the treatment of acute and chronic PTSD. She’s an EMDRIA Approved EMDR Trainer, provides training for the Trauma Response/EMDR Humanitarian Assistance Program, and is Co-Coordinator of the Fairfield County Trauma Recovery Network.
