Per EMDRIA, rather than focusing on changing the emotions, thoughts, or behaviors resulting from the distressing issue, allows the brain to resume its natural healing process. EMDR therapy is designed to resolve unprocessed traumatic memories in the brain. Part of the therapy includes alternating eye movements, sounds, or taps. For many clients, EMDR therapy can be completed in fewer sessions than other psychotherapies.

EMDR is an approach to therapy that greatly benefits patients dealing with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and trauma. However, other patients can take advantage of EMDR therapy. When discussing events and emotions during a session, therapists have patients use eye movements to focus and process trauma.

In practice since the 1990s, EMDR is growing in popularity as a treatment for trauma. Many organizations, such as the American Psychological Association, recognize EMDR as an effective method of treatment.

How does EMDR work?

The exact reasons why EMDR is effective for so many people are still debated by professionals. EMDR may help provide patients with something to focus on while discussing difficult and painful memories.
