New psychotherapy sparks controversial debate

Description

Bob Edwards, Host: A new type of psychotherapy has triggered debate among mental health professionals. Proponents of the therapy, known as Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing, or EMDR, say it's highly effective for alleviating the emotional effects of traumatic experiences. But, critics say EMDR is an unproven therapy, and they question in particular a part of the treatment that involves using rapid eye movements.
