EMDR is Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. It is a super fast technique of getting rid of the painful parts of traumas. It lets the body and the brain release the emotional and physical pains of traumatic experiences like rape, near death experiences, physical/sexual abuse, grief, etc and also helps with the (relatively) less traumatic things like phobias, guilt, anger, eating disorders, bad relationships with your family of origin, etc. A given event can be processed and relief can occur in as little as two hours. It uses the same eye movements that occur in dream sleep (which is associated with memory, learning and emotional encoding of events) while thinking about a stressful event and the negative thoughts that event causes you to think about yourself. The brain is not able to hold all these things at once and the easiest thing to let go of is the emotional pain which in turn allows the event to be properly placed into "memory" rather than keeping it "locked" in the nervouse system and always feeling it like it just happened yesterday. Sounds hokey. It works.
