EMDR is an evidence-based practice as listed by SAMHSA. The American Psychiatric Association, the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies, the US Department of Veterans Affairs and Department of Defense designated EMDR as a treatment of choice for Post Traumatic Stress. A Purdue University study found that 84% of their college sophomores experienced at least one traumatic event in their life. 90% of mental health clients have experienced multiple traumas in their life.
