Questions have arisen about the use of EMDR in the courts and the comparison to hypnosis. So far EMDR is not well enough known to have been tested in court; it is simply described under the rubric of cognitive- behavioral techniques (as it is for insurance purposes). However, I want to make sure everyone realizes that just because a scene emerges during an EMDR session, does not mean that it is "true" in a literal sense. Things can be "truly experienced without having actually happened.
