“EMDR is a powerful tool to counteract anxiety and help heal painful past memories. The focus of Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing is the resolution of emotional distress arising from difficult childhood memories, or traumatic events such as automobile accidents, assaults, natural disasters, and combat trauma. We have seen it be very helpful for anxiety reduction and performance enhancement. An analysis of fifty-nine studies of PTSD indicated that EMDR treatment time was three times shorter than behavior therapy. EMDR is one of the most rapid and effective treatments we have ever personally seen as psychiatrists.”
~Daniel G. Amen, M.D.
“We believe that EMDR induces a fundamental change in brain circuitry similar to what happens in REM sleep–that allows the person undergoing treatment to more effectively process and incorporate traumatic memories into general association networks in the brain. This helps the individual integrate and understand the memories within the larger context of his or her life experience.”

“The speed at which change occurs during EMDR contradicts the traditional notion of time as essential for psychological healing. EMDR uses elements from many different schools of psychotherapy into its protocols, making EMDR applicable to a variety of clinical populations.”

“A study comparing the effectiveness of Prozac vs. Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing showed that EMDR was more successful than Prozac in achieving substantial and sustained reductions in anxiety and depression.”
