But does it work?
I have no involvement with EMDR and cannot comment on the claims and counterclaims for its efficacy or theoretical basis. However, those working to assess claim and counterclaim will not be well guided if they accept at face value Robert Forde’s view (Letters, October) that the progress of knowledge is ‘data-based, cumulative and theory-driven’. This very Popperian view of ‘science’ may describe its appearance from a distance, but certainly not what actually goes on.
