Improve performance with EMDR
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a psychotherapeutic treatment that facilitates the resolution of symptoms and emotional distress related to stressful and traumatic life experiences. The effectiveness of EMDR has been demonstrated in all kinds of trauma, both the post-traumatic Stress that for minor injuries, but it is also used as a strategy to increase the results of professionals and athletes in all sports.
It is therefore an integrated and usable in various contexts, as it focuses on resolving problems, conflicts, current hardships whereas what happens now derive from the information, memories of the past, the ancients who were frozen in the memory.
The focus of EMDR is the memory of the traumatic experience to process it on an emotional level, cognitive and at the level of bodily sensations.
The goal of EMDR is resuming information, the image, the original memory and allow the patient to rework it so that the information can become frozen into the present and possibly Adaptive improve its future. EMDR acts on the difficulty of this going to the source, in the past and in the future. The methodology is built through bilateral ocular or sensory stimulation (tapping) of the hemispheres (left and right) in order to rework the memory, or anticipate and prepare for the future project.
Clinical applications of EMDR have been widely studied with different disorders such as:
Panic disorders (Goldstein et al., 2000; Fernandez & Faretta, 2007), Generalized anxiety disorder (Gauvreau & Bouchard, 2008), Problems of conduct and self esteem (Soberman, Greenwald & Rule, 2002), Performance anxiety (Barker & Barker, 2007), Chronic Pain (Grant & Threlfo, 2002).
From work with EMDR, the memories, the information, are processed by the patient with the help of appropriate bilateral ocular or sensory stimulation (tapping) and going to a job on the future, about how the patient would like to face the upcoming situations where typically is in difficulties and, then, the patient is asked to imagine how could experiment in the near future now that his beliefs, its beliefs, her locks are changed, What could change, What is imagined in those situations.
It can also be used with professionals and athletes who want to improve their performance. First, by helping the person to develop a confidence in himself for an upcoming commitment. The therapist helps the patient to assess what he already knows to do for optimal performance and remains focused on the upcoming performance of the subject. Anything that goes beyond this task is considered a distraction. Internal distractions, What doubts about themselves or concerns are "lower intensity"
Using EMDR you helps the person to imagine the entire performance from beginning to end, making sure to feel the whole body, muscular sensations while doing this, moving within the experience as vividly as possible and if there is any distraction suggest that can put it in a container and resume at a later time.
The intervention in EMDR can be used to help the athlete to:
1. develop internal resources in order to help establish a sense of efficacy and possibilities for the future: help the person to focus on positive feelings related to each resource and to locate the body positive feeling;
2. create an Inner Advisor or an "Inner Coach": to imagine a real or imaginary person that may constitute an inner resource, his voice while giving suggestions or remember the strengths, his positive qualities;
3. develop a plan for future action effective: to describe the challenging situation to overcome, to express its qualities that are needed to handle the situation, to imagine what more he needs to manage, deal with the situation and to draw up a plan where to establish how to acquire these new skills.
It should be noted that the EMDR approach should be administered by Psychotherapists enabled through special courses that allow you to avoid serious errors to the detriment of people who trust the professionalism of the therapist.
