Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing: A matter for serious consideration?

Description

This short article sets out to promote thought as to whether treatments that are ineffectually proven might be doing more harm than good. It suggests that branching out into usage of EMDR with conditions other than PTSD may be dangerous until more research points to how it actually works. Moreover, I want to encourage serious consideration of whether or not eye movements play a part in the treatment's success.
