I'm saddened to hear of Francine Shapiro's death earlier this week....if you don't know, this woman discovered EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) which is an effective tool in reducing the impact of hurtful memories, it reduces the impact of PTSD, anxiety, depression, chronic pain, drug addiction, attachment issues, grief, insomnia and eating disorders...and that's just part of what EMDR does. I absolutely love providing EMDR to the clients that I work with and am forever indebted to this woman and her discovery. For more information about Francine Shapiro read:
Wow, maybe I should go to PR and provide EMDR services to the children over there, with 1 in every 14 children showing signs of PTSD. The article also shares that the girls are more likely to show signs of anxiety and depression while the boys were more likely to act aggressive.
