What is EMDR?
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a therapeutic approach developed in the late 1980s by Francine Shapiro, Ph.D., for the treatment of emotional distress resulting from disturbing and traumatic life experiences.
Prior to EMDR, it was widely assumed that healing from emotional trauma was a lengthy process occurring over months or even years. Dr. Shapiro theorized that through a process of accelerated information processing, the brain could actually access and process blocked emotional material much faster. Just as the body strives for physical healing from wounds it suffers, the brain strives for healing from emotional wounds.
EMDR, through a process of alternating stimulation via eye movements, tapping, or sound, appears to activate our own natural information processing system and to unblock formally unprocessed disturbing or traumatic material that now negatively affects a person’s life.
