What is EMDR?

Description

EMDR may seem innocuous, but it is not. There are well-established, validated treatments for many of the conditions for which EMDR is being recommended. Patients should not be induced to forgo established treatments for the sake of an unproven therapy -in effect, participating in a research project -when they cannot give informed consent because they are not told about the altern a t'I ves. Furthermore, public trust in the mental healtll professions is eroded when faddish treatments make exaggerated claims that inevitably fall under the weight of scientificevidence and the disillusionment of practitioners.
