Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy is an evidenced-based therapeutic approach and considered the gold standard in processing trauma. EMDR uses bilateral stimulation (eye movements, tapping, auditory tones) to allow the brain to process distressing memories so that memories can be recalled without a trauma response. EMDR does not require homework nor does it require clients to speak in detail about the trauma.
