WTF is "EMDR?"

"EMDR" stands for "Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing." Sounds scary, I know. The first time I heard of EMDR, I was in graduate school for my Master of Counselling Psychology degree at Adler University (then called Adler School of Professional Psychology). I thought it sounded "hoaxy" and "rigid." Back then, it was claiming to be a specified tool for trauma counselling--almost like a "silver bullet."
