“Think of a distressful experience, and follow the dot with your eyes (hold head still) for 30 seconds or more.”
In 1987, Francine Shapiro was walking in the park when she realized that eye movements appeared to decrease the negative emotion associated with her own distressing memories. She assumed that eye movements had a desensitizing effect, and when she experimented with this, she found that others also had the same response to eye movements.
