Three years ago, while I was at the at the Olympus Women's Spa celebrating the publication of EMDR Solutions II, a woman in the same jacuzzi interrupted my conversation to attack me about my obvious misperceptions about EMDR. "Everybody knows it doesn't work . . . it's woo-woo-bullshit . . . and it's just exposure therapy, anyway . . . and there's no good research about it." She was a researcher of cognitive and exposure therapies. When I tried, gently, to refute her, she spit on my friend and me, in her rage. Today, in the New York Times Health, Consults blog, Francine Shapiro has brilliantly refuted every point. Read the article here. HAH!
