In my 13 years or so of being an EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing) clinician, I have often found myself having to debunk myths about EMDR or reframe and educate therapists and consumers about what EMDR is and isn’t. Unfortunately, many perceptions and beliefs about what EMDR is and isn’t have come from well-meaning, referring therapists who may not be trained in EMDR but value it as a therapeutic modality.
