(Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing)


Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, or EMDR is an evidence-based therapy technique developed by Dr. Francine Shapiro in 1987 to address traumatic memories. She posited a theory that when someone experiences a trauma, it is so disturbing to the mind that it overwhelms the brains ability to process and store the information correctly as a memory and the experience becomes “stuck” in the Limbic system (the system responsible for flight, fight or freeze reactions to stress).
