Controversial therapy could reduce trauma

Description

Discusses eye movement desensitization and reprocessing therapy (EMDR)--a controversial new treatment for psychological trauma. Talk of EMDR has been sweeping through the popular press over the past few months. Headlines have called the treatment "too good to be true," "trendy" and a "miracle cure." All the attention on EMDR stems not only from the claims by therapists of unusually rapid cures in patients for whom no other therapy has worked, but also from the unorthodox technique.
