EMDR practice guidelines: EMDR with children

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing [EMDR] (Shapiro, 1989) is a treatment technique during which accelerated processing of traumatic memory is facilitated through the shifting of attention between the left and right hemispheres of the brain. The methods utilized to facilitate the rapid switching of attention include the use of tapping, eye movement or sound. EMDR has also been beneficial in treating other disorders and conditions, i.e. grief and loss, low self esteem, anger management, depression etc. Its use should not be limited to only trauma or anxiety disorders. The methods utilized to facilitate the rapid switching of attention include the use of tapping, eye movement or sound.
