What is Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing?
Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing is an evidence-based and effective treatment that is used to address different psychological issues and to diminish negative feelings and disturbing emotions, especially those associated with traumatic events. In particular, it is helpful in addressing past stressful situations and treating conditions such as Post-traumatic Stress Disorder, Phobias, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Chronic Pain and Depression.
