Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is a psychotherapy technique that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of all disturbing life experiences, not only severe traumas. It can also help clients to regulate their affect.
Repeated studies show that by using EMDR therapy people can experience the benefits of psychotherapy that once took years to make a difference. It is widely assumed that severe emotional pain requires a long time to heal. EMDR therapy shows that the mind can in fact heal from psychological trauma much as the body recovers from physical trauma.
Some examples of EMDR studies:
