Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR) is a form of psychotherapy in which the person being treated is asked to recall distressing images while generating one type of bilateral sensory input, such as side-to-side eye movements or hand tapping. It is included in several guidelines for the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
The way it works is yet unknown however, research has shown that EMDR is particularly helpful for people with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
EMDR aims to reduce subjective distress and strengthen adaptive beliefs related to the traumatic event. EMDR does not involve (a) detailed descriptions of the event, (b) direct challenging of beliefs, (c) extended exposure, or (d) homework”.
