EMI not EMDR
I recently trained in Eye Movement Integration therapy. What is it? EMI is a similar technique to EMDR, it helps soften the trauma that is left after an distressing experience. EMI has it roots in NLP, and uses eye movements as a way of processing traumatic memory and the emotions associated with them. People usually only require one or two sessions of EMI before they feel the benefit of it. EMI was developed from EMDR and I believe it is a more thorough process as it goes into more depth and uses SPEM (Smooth pursuit eye movements) the opposite of REM (Rapid eye movements).
