What is EMDR?
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is a form of psychotherapy developed in the late eighties by Francine Shapiro that uses an integrated and
structured approach. Research has shown that EMDR is effective in resolving trauma symptoms resulting from disturbing and/or unaddressed life experiences (for example sexual violence or vicarious trauma experienced by first responders).
Multiple clinical trials have been conducted to assess EMDR's efficacy in the treatment of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
