What EMDR means is eye movement desensitization and reprocessing. It is a type of modality based on the adaptive information processing system which allows for the processing of traumatic memories in a more adaptive manner. This way symptoms and behaviors that develop as a result of traumatic stress are reduced and resolved for individuals.
Traumatic memories are unprocessed memories which may lead to pathological symptoms. (Shapiro, F. 2006,2007).
