This video provides an insightful view of Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), probing both its widespread popularity and areas of controversy. Larry Beutler, prominent psychotherapy researcher, serves as commentator in a program that features Francine Shapiro, EMDR's originator, as well as others in the field. The video offers a demonstration of the eight-step EMDR protocol and explores a range of issues surrounding this unique therapy. The accompanying manual by Jon Allen and associates reviews the clinical protocol and available research and features a helpful patient education handout.

Note: EMDR is now recognized by the American Psychiatric Association as an effective treatment for ameliorating symptoms of both acute and chronic PTSD (APA Practice Guidelines for the Treatment of Patients with Acute Stress Disorder and Posttraumatic Stress Disorder).
