Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)

In 1987, psychologist Dr. Francine Shapiro made the chance observation that eye movement can reduce the intensity of disturbing thoughts. EMDR seems to have a direct effect on the way that the brain processed information. EMDR appears to be similar to what occurs naturally during dreaming or REM (rapid eye movement) sleep.  EMDR is considered a physiologically based therapy that helps a person see disturbing material in a new and less distressing way.
