How does EMDR really work?

How Can EMDR Help Me?

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a psychotherapy treatment that was originally designed to alleviate the distress associated with traumatic memories (Shapiro, 1989a, 1989b). EMDR is a transformative process that brings old negative and distressing memories to neutral ground. After successful treatment with EMDR, affective distress and symptoms are relieved, and negative beliefs are reformulated. After 16 published studies, EMDR is in the “A” category for treatment of trauma. It is now considered a mainstream method of treatment, critical in working with clients experiencing post trauma.
