Session 25: What in the World is EMDR?

The Therapy for Black GirlsTM Podcast is a weekly conversation with Dr. Joy Harden Bradford, a licensed Psychologist in Atlanta, Georgia, about all things mental health, personal development, and all the small decisions we can make to become the best possible versions of ourselves.

In this week’s episode I chatted with Kelli Davis, Licensed Professional Counselor in Memphis, TN about EMDR, which is a treatment method designed to help people work through trauma. Kelli and I discussed what EMDR is, how she uses it with her clients, what concerns it is useful for, and how it differs from traditional talk therapy.
