The eyes have it: How the method works -- Here's how eye-movement desensitization and reprocessing is performed

Description

Therapists say clients with a single tramuatic event may need only one to three 90-minute sessions. Those with chronic post-traumatic stress disorder -- women molested for years as children or Vietnam veterans -- can require many more sessions as well as other kinds of assistance to treat what EMDR creator Francine Shapiro calls ``secondary gain.'' These are the benefits that reinforce the trauma, such as the disability checks a Vietnam veteran receives or the attention and nurturing a molestation victim gets.
