In this article the 8 step process of EMDR is explained as well as additional research results citing the effectiveness of EMDR therapy. As cited by the article, A 2014 review of the existing research showed that in some studies, 84% to 90% of people who have experienced a single trauma found relief from PTSD symptoms after just three EMDR sessions that lasted 90 minutes each. In addition, in a study by Kaiser Permanente, people who had experienced a single trauma or multiple traumas underwent six 50-minute EMDR sessions. Following the therapy, 100% of the single-trauma patients and 77% of multiple-trauma victims no longer had PTSD. The study indicates that a relatively small number of EMDR treatment sessions result in substantial benefits that are maintained over time.
