Yes, I've tried it for PTSD. As Dinah mentioned there is a thread about this that you might want to read.

I got into EMDR about 3 months ago because I was stuck in my therapy.

I head back to EMDR on Tuesday. Yuck. It was nice being away from it for two weeks. That said, yes it has helped me a great deal. It hasn't helped as much w/memories as it has w/remembering and "feeling" the feelings I experienced as a child over the PTSD. The joke is on me, though. I've always considered myself a very emotional person, but when it comes to this stuff, I'm totally disassociated from that little girl.

If you're thinking of trying EMDR, be sure to pick a reputable therapist and be sure that you feel comfortable and safe w/them before you begin. Even better, be sure that you have someone else (your regular T?) to go over the stuff that comes up.

I haven't had any great breakthroughs (or breakdowns) but I have faced some feelings I didn't know I had (anger, devastation, loss, etc.)
