EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is an information processing therapy that has structured protocols designed to help resolve psychological problems. It is a common and effective modality used with traumatized clients. One of the central elements of the procedure includes bilateral stimulation of the brain through the visual, auditory or tactical modalities. During the processing the client attends to past memories, what is going on in their body and anticipated future experiences. EMDR allows the client to process memories of events that were stored traumatically, that are “stuck” or “frozen”, so that new associations can be made, and their traumatizing effect eliminated. Often there accompanies emergencies of new insights. (From the EMDR Institute, Inc website)
