Cognitive behavioral therapy assumes that complaints are affected and maintained by thoughts (cognitions) and behavior. Together with the therapist your behavior and cognitions are examined and changed, and subsequently the complaints are expected to decrease.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a trauma focused treatment, at which one is instructed to memorize the traumatic event and to perform a distracting task (such as making eye movements). Combining these tasks and therefore using working memory results in a decrease of (the intensity of) the re-experiences of the traumatic event.
