What is EMDR Therapy ?   Short answer:    Eye Movement Desensitisation (EMD) and Reprocessing Therapy (R).
I consider EMDR Therapy to be the most important development in the health field in my practising lifetime. I am happy to report that it has recently been approved by Medicare in Australia as an evidence-based approach to psychotherapy. It was listed as a 'Focussed Psychological Strategy' (FPS) in the Australian Medical Benefits Schedule (MBS) in May 2020.
