EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), a therapeutic technique I am trained in and have extensive experience using, is primarily used to help people integrate past traumatic memories in a more adaptive manner so that they are able to remember the past without having a feeling of reliving or being haunted by it.  The counseling process has the person recount the past event in a safe space with their eyes moving back and forth in a particular way.  It is a simple and effective process that helps the brain communicate and process differently so that the person’s mind and body become significantly freer of the symptoms they have been experiencing as a result of the past trauma.  EMDR helps the deeper mind get that the traumatic event doesn’t exist anymore and that they are now safe, then the mind and body no longer feel the need to protect itself from things that don’t currently exist (i.e. the past).  Feel free to visit the national EMDR site for more information.  https://www.emdr.com/what-is-emdr/
