Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is an integrative psychotherapy approach that has been extensively researched and proven effective for the treatment of trauma. EMDR treatment uses eye movements to help the client become desensitized to the negative emotions associated with a traumatic event and to reprocess those memories into something more positive. To date, EMDR therapy has helped millions of people of all ages relieve many types of psychological stress.
