Welcome to EMDR TriSense! This is the companion website to EMDR TriSense, an app that facilitates the EMDR therapy using smartphones. The app is available for Android (version 2.2 and up) from Google Play Store.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a safe psychotherapeutic technique that can help overcome anxiety, stress, and traumas. By applying the EMDR psychotherapy, a person can:
● Decrease effect of disturbing memories
● Decrease post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms
● Decrease phobia and panic disorder symptoms
The EMDR protocol includes desensitization of negative emotions associated with painful memories, and consequently reprocessing those memories from a current, healthier perspective. The desensitization effect is achieved by appropriate dual attention stimulation of the left and right brain hemispheres. Under proper conditions, reprocessing happens naturally, using innate healing capacities of the brain. Eye movement is one of the ways to trigger desensitization and reprocessing, not unlike the process happening during a dreamful sleep, in the Rapid Eye Movement (REM) phase.
The full EMDR protocol includes many steps, which desensitization and reprocessing is only one of. It should be provided only by a qualified psychotherapist, specifically trained in EMDR. If you are looking for a qualified professional, the EMDR International Association maintains a directory of trained therapists.
EMDR TriSense is an app providing bilateral desensitization stimulus using three modalities. It assists an EMDR therapy session performed by a psychotherapist trained in EMDR. It can also be used for general relaxation or anxiety reduction.
Use any combination for stimuli:
Audio (configurable stereo sound)
Visuals tracking (eye movement)
Vibration (haptic stimulus)
