"Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is a well-researched, highly effective psychotherapy. It can help people overcome trauma and other distressing life experiences such as anxiety, depression, and panic disorder.EMDR therapy has a range of benefits primarily targeted towards those who are facing trauma-related symptoms. This type of therapy can be beneficial to someone experiencing signs and symptoms of PTSD, Anxiety, self-esteem issues, and more. It can even help with chronic pain. Mainly when joined together with other treatment approaches such as talk therapy, EMDR"s detailed phases have proven to be very effective in helping to relieve a person"s trauma. Some who go through EMDR therapy, for example, are partially rid of their PTSD symptoms while others overcome them entirely. This eventually allows them to be able to think about the event without feeling overwhelmed.When Francine Shapiro noticed that distressing memories were connected with eye movement, she began a lifelong journey towards developing and refining EMDR therapy. Although some were skeptical of her ideas, Shapiro"s theory has held several case studies, clinical trials, and tests from well-known, trustworthy organizations. The World Health Organization (WHO) and the American Psychiatric Association (APA) are notable examples. Unfortunately, Shapiro is no longer with us. Her legacy lives on in many trained, professional therapists who take her ideas to heart, implementing them along with their clients to create a happier, healthier world."
