EMDR: An evolving therapy
In simple words, information processing takes place in EMDR therapy. The three-pronged ap-proach of EMDR addresses the past, the present and the future . In EMDR, a therapist assists the client to transform negative experiences or dis-turbing thoughts to adaptive learning expe-riences. In fact, the Adaptive Information Processing Model is based on the observa-tions from EMDR treatment effects. When we go through the eight phases of EMDR treatment, it reflects the many major psychological orientations followed by EMDR, like psychodynamic ther-apy, behaviour therapy, cognitive therapy, experiential therapy, hypnotic therapy and client centered therapy. Hence, EMDR is a fine example of an eclectic model. [Excerpt]
