Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) methodology is a form of adaptive information processing which may help the brain unblock maladaptive material. It also appears the EMDR may avoid some of the long and difficult work often involved in the treatment of anxiety, sexual abuse, physical abuse, panic attacks, PTSD and other traumatic experiences. EMDR is used to treat the memory networks that are the underlying basis of pathology. Memories are stored in associative memory networks and are the basis of perception, attitude and behavior. Trauma can cause a disruption of normal adaptive information processing which results in unprocessed information which is dysfunctionally held in the memory networks.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is an integrative psychotherapy approach that has been extensively researched and proven effective for the treatment of trauma.
