Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a psychotherapy method that aims to help people heal from Trauma and other distressing life experiences. The theory behind EMDR is based on the Adaptive Information Processing (AIP) model, which proposes that traumatic memories are stored differently than normal memories in the brain. Traumatic memories are not fully processed and integrated, and they remain isolated and disconnected from other memories. This causes them to be easily triggered by Sensory cues, resulting in Emotional distress and Negative beliefs about oneself and the world.
