Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing – EMDR

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a form of psychotherapy that has been widely used and researched for the treatment of psychological trauma, and other similar struggles, such as a specific phobia.

Detailed information on research outcomes can be found in several national and international websites related to the different EMDR Associations as well as the EMDR Institute. This therapy modality has demonstrated that PTSD as well as other types of emotional distress, stemming from disturbing life experiences or phobias, can be overcome in a much shorter period of time than what it was once believed.

EMDR has been recognized as an effective form of treatment for trauma by organizations, such as the American Psychiatric Association and the World Health Organization.
