What is EMDR?

EMDR is an approach to psychotherapy including principles, procedures, and protocols. While the technique was originated utilizing eye movements, it is not a simple technique. To become trained in EMDR requires a strong therapeutic background and solid training in EMDR methodology. EMDR is based on the principle that all persons have both an innate tendency to move toward wellness, and the internal capacity to achieve it. EMDR is well grounded in psychological science, theory, and research.
