Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a sometimes silent affliction that affects many people each year. Often when we think of a person having PTSD, we picture a soldier who served overseas and is now discharged as a veteran. Although veterans are a highly visible population, they are only one group of people who may experience PTSD in their lifetimes. Victims of physical or emotional abuse, neglect, and poverty during their formative years may also have PTSD, as will victims of rape. A person may experience what is called "secondary PTSD" from living with a person affected. Often this condition creates a family dynamic that causes the household to revolve around the victim in a way that is unhealthy for all family members.

There are many ways to alleviate the anxiety associated with PTSD, and to let go of the past patterns, but EMDR is one of the best available types of PTSD therapy.
