I think it might intesrest some of you. I'm doing a assignment on a therapeutic approach and I chose EMDR (Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing). For those that don't know what it is, it's essentialy a really short term therapy (usually only 3 sessions) in which the therapist makes you talk about the traumatic experience and while you do so, he moves his fingers from right to left to activate different regions of the brain so that you can actually integrate the information that relates to the trauma. In this view, the problems would be caused by the fact that there's a bad integration of the trauma in the memory. That's a short description but feel free to ask questions and I'll try to dig in ! That's a treatment that is scientifically proven and suggested for those with post-traumatic stress disorder (I think it was the first therapy scientifically proven to work for this problem) and in general it can help people with anxiety problem and a whole lot of other problems.
