As a way to offer alternative treatment and better serve the pediatric population in the community, through the Maiberger Institute, two therapists at the Pediatric Partners Clinic in Bismarck have received their certification to offer Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is an evidence-based, integrative modality designed to alleviate distress associated with disturbing events, traumatic memories, and uncomfortable mental health symptoms.

EMDR therapy aids the patient in identifying, accessing, and processing traumatic memories, thoughts, feelings and other adverse life experiences to bring these to an adaptive resolution where new associations are forged, distress is relieved, negative beliefs reformulated, and physiological arousal reduced.
