EMDR

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)

The EMDR International Association has noted that EMDR therapy is an extensively researched, effective psychotherapy method proven to help people recover from trauma and other distressing life experiences, including PTSD, anxiety, depression, and panic disorders.  Treatment guidelines (accessible through emdria.org) are based on reviews that evaluate research of established evidence-based mental health treatments.

The American Psychiatric Association, The American Psychological Association, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence, the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, the U.S. Dept. of Veterans Affairs/Dept. of Defense, The Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews, and the World Health Organization among many other national and international organizations recognize EMDR therapy as an effective treatment.
