EMDR, Inferential Behaviour Therapy
EMDR, also known as Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing therapy uses a range of processes to address the full clinical situation. Dual stimulation is one of the key elements and the therapist will use tools such as bilateral eye movements, taps or tones.
Reprocessing involves the client momentarily attending to triggers, past memories or anticipated future events, all the while focusing on the supplied external stimulus. Normally, the client will experience memory changes, new associations and insights. EMDR has been found to be incredibly useful for processing past and present trauma that can continue to impact an individual in many ways.
There are eight phases to EMDR treatment and the therapist will devise a treatment plan during the first phase, and equip the client with the necessary coping skills in the second phase. Phases 3-6 cover the actual EMDR treatment, described above. Phase 7 is about closure, while phase eight is all about re-evaluation of the process.

Inferential Behaviour Therapy is a newer treatment for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder - OCD, which moves away from exposure and response prevention to view OCD as a problem of inference, rather than anxiety management, which effectively explains a broader range of OCD subtypes. It's easier to deploy and gets better results faster, in controlled trials.
