EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing. It involves a cognitive protocol of setting up what your belief system is concerning a specific incident. Then the subject either follows lights with her eyes, or sounds to the left then right ear, or vibrations on the left to right side. There are hypotheseses that it works because the shifting the two brain hemisphere allows one to process information differently. Some people say it is a very calm feeling; others find it quite intense for processing memories, and exhausting.

It was been used for PDSD for combat veterns and appears to work well for abuse survivors.
You can look up EMDR on the internet; there are also lots of posts at the search on psychobabble.
