One form of trauma therapy involves the use of EMDR (Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), a researched and effective method for treating trauma. EMDR was developed by Francine Shapiro and is based on the theory that traumatic experiences and distressing events are often linked to emotional disturbances. EMDR supports the reprocessing of these events, removing the connected distressful emotions and replacing them with neutral or positive emotions.
