Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is a treatment approach that has been widely validated by research for the treatment of PTSD. Other research populations successfully treated with EMDR include phobias, panic disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, depression, attachment disorder, conduct problems and self-esteem, grief and mourning, and chronic pain.
EMDR is a simple but efficient therapy using bilateral stimulation (BLS) - eye movements, tapping, and auditory tones- to accelerate the brain's capacity to process and heal a troubling memory. BLS, which occurs naturally during dream sleep, causes the two brain parts to work together to reintegrate the memory.
