Not only intense dreams in which a trauma is relived, but all complaints resulting from a trauma can only be combated after trauma processing. EMDR is a proven successful treatment method for this. The treatment was developed in 1989 by an American psychologist, distraction from the trauma is a central practice. The exact working of EMDR in the brain is still being studied scientifically. However, it has been scientifically proven that EMDR is successful in processing trauma.
During the session, the client is supposed to recall the trauma, including all the feelings and thoughts of the moment. The therapist then distracts the client with a hand gesture or with a sound signal. During the distraction, the client no longer thinks about the trauma. This must be done repeatedly, so that a kind of habituation arises, which allows the client to recall the traumatic moment over and over again and to put it away during a distraction. In this way the trauma gets a place. Of course, emotions may still be felt when thinking back to the event, but it has less influence on daily functioning. Also bad dreams with a reliving of the trauma will in time no longer occur. With successful treatment, healing of PTSD is possible.
The founders of Psylaris originally came from the mental healthcare sector and felt that mental healthcare should be better and more easily accessible. For this purpose, Psylaris developed various tools and innovations. One example is EMDR-Remote. This is an online platform, whereby an EMDR treatment at a distance is possible. On the platform, the practitioner can make video calls with the client and enable digital distraction tasks. In this way, clients who are chained to their homes can still receive treatment.
Psylaris is also working on virtual reality with various VR modules for VR glasses. Psylaris has developed the module EMDR-VR . If distraction with the hands does not work sufficiently, VR glasses are an option. This allows the client to be completely cut off from the outside world and the distraction is very intense. The VR glasses can be used during a session in the treatment room, but also from home. Both with EMDR-Remote and EMDR-VR it is possible to treat more frequently, at lower costs and with a better time planning.
As a developer of modern methods and tools in mental healthcare, Psylaris has also made EMDR easy with modern techniques. Virtual reality, for example, plays an increasingly important role in the mental healthcare sector. With EMDR-VR and EMDR-plus, Psylaris has developed a VR-module. The module can easily be used by the practitioner and has many distraction possibilities. The client gets a more intense distraction than during a regular treatment. The VR glasses can be used both at home and in the treatment room. This makes both the practitioner and the client more flexible.
If the client is unable to come to the treatment centre, Psylaris uses EMDR-remote to make it possible to receive EMDR treatment at home. EMDR-remote is the online EMDR platform of Psylaris, where the practitioner and the client can conduct an EMDR session via video calling. Again, the practitioner has many possibilities to distract and the client, who is chained to the house, is still being treated.
We believe with the combination of intelligent software and qualified therapists we can develop a system in which everyone, anytime and anywhere has direct access to efficient and affordable psychological care.
