As stated by EMDR Institute, Inc., “EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a psychotherapy that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences.”  In sessions, clients shift patterns of avoidance and explore their memories and interpretations of past events. In between sets of eye movements, the therapist checks in with the client to follow how they are reprocessing the events and guide the client further. Typically, through EMDR, negative beliefs about self decrease and, following this, positive thoughts and perspectives are strengthened.
