BRATTLEBORO Help for Trauma and Anxiety: Donald Skekel offers an introduction to Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), a non-drug, non-hypnosis psychotherapy procedure which is particularly helpful for trauma and anxiety. The therapist guides the client in concentrating on a troubling memory or emotion while moving the eyes rapidly back and forth (by following the therapist's fingers). This rapid eye movement, which occurs naturally during dreaming, seems to speed the client's movement through the healing process. noon - 1 p.m. Free.
