EMDR Therapy

EMDR therapy is a psychotherapy that was developed by Francine Shapiro in the 1970s. It has been used to treat trauma-related disorders such as posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety, and depression. EMDR therapy is based on the theory of traumatic memory processing and involves the use of bilateral stimulation with eye movements.
