Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing is a popular form of therapy that helps to alleviate symptoms of severe trauma.
Trauma can be caused by exposure to situations where there is a serious threat to someone’s safety or welfare.  Symptoms of trauma include anxiety, emotional detachment, anger, and depression among many others.  One of the most well known diagnoses for trauma is Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.

Through EMDR, traumatic experience is processed through the brain and nervous system so that individuals can return to healthy functioning.
