EMDR is a form of psychotherapy that focuses on helping people heal symptoms related to disturbing life events and/or trauma. There have been numerous controlled studies demonstrating that EMDR can assist people in healing traumatic memories in a much shorter time-frame than with other forms of psychotherapy.

Moreover, EMDR may be efficacious in treating other mental disorders including phobias, panic disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, etc.
