Overview of EMDR: Basic Concepts and Applications*
Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) is a treatment modality designed by Francine Shapiro in the late 80s as a result of her own experiences with distressing memories she was having at the time. Since then, it has evolved into a nationally recognized form of treatment used mainly with trauma-based disorders (including PTSD) but has been expanded to other disorders since its inception.
