Treating PTSD with EMDR - Psychotherapist Peter Ciceri
Show Notes

We talk with Peter Ciceri, a psychotherapist and trauma counsellor certified in the use of EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) to manage trauma and PTSD.  His practice is generally used by first responders and he's really beginning to understand the struggles Police Officers are dealing with on a daily basis.  He says the brain can't distinguish between a psychical injury or an emotional injury, so get treatment or help for that injury.

He knows the goal for every police department is "to have a high functioning police force not suffering from PTSD or trauma" and he can help meet that goal.

Peter also wants to remind police officers that "getting mental health assistance is not a weakness".
