“COVID-19 has moved most therapy online, and for those who were in the middle of EMDR therapy, therapists face a major challenge on how to continue delivering EMDR to clients remotely. Historically, EMDR is done in your therapist’s office. It’s a hands-on treatment method — bilateral stimulation tools usually live in the office. Therapists have solved this issue by asking clients to tap on their legs at home or use a screen-sharing program so the therapist can start and stop left-right stimulation on the screen.”
