What is the scientific status of eye movement desensitization and reprocessing therapy?

Description

Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) has enjoyed rapid dissemination and adoption since being introduced by Christine Shapiro in the 1980s as a 1-session treatment for posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and other anxiety disorders. EMDR is now offered as a treatment for a variety of other problems, including substance abuse, personality disorder, and athletic performance enhancement, and large numbers of therapists have been trained by the EMDR Institute.
