EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing)
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a psychotherapy that uses eye movements to reprocess memories. This technique was developed in 1987 by Francine Shapiro, PhD, who wanted to help people with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
EMDR is used for many reasons, including the treatment of anxiety disorders and addiction. EMDR can also be used as a part of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and other psychotherapies.
EMDR is a treatment that aims to work on your brain to desensitize and alleviate traumas like Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) by utilizing eye movement and/or other methods of bilateral stimulation. EMDR is expected to facilitate reprocessing of traumatic memories to alleviate the symptoms caused by memories. EMDR continues to gain more popularity by way of royal and celebrity endorsement.
