What is EMDR? Is it really helpful for trauma and PTSD?
EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. EMDR emerged in the late 1980’s when Dr. Francine Shapiro realized through happenstance that eye movements appeared to decrease the negative emotion associated with her own distressing memories while walking in the park. Since that time, EMDR has developed into one of the leading modalities of treatment for therapeutic work with trauma victims. EMDR involves an 8 phase process in which basically eye movements are used in order to work through traumatic memories with the client. Studies continue to show more and more that EMDR is one of the most effective, and quickest ways to work through traumatic events compared to other modalities.
