Disasters, crime leave their marks on survivors
"There are some new treatment approaches that can shorten the amount of time some of these people have to spend in therapy," Patterson said. "One of these is known as EMDR -- eye movement desensitization and reprocessing. It is effective." The treatment, developed in the late 1980s, uses eye movement in connection with images or other reminders to help people to release a trauma.
