Trauma can come from any type of catastrophic event that has occurred at some point in your life and the thoughts that you have from the traumatic event end up overtaking every other thought that you may have. These thoughts not only take over what you think about, the thoughts can end up completely overtaking your everyday life. Even during the time that you should be sleeping, you end up only thinking about the thoughts about the traumatic event.
The treatment method that is used by Meadowbrook is EMDR, which works by desensitizing you to the effect that the thought of the traumatic event has on you when you begin to think about the event that happened. This process of desensitizing you to the effect of the thought helps to decrease how much control the thought of the traumatic event has on your life.
