It is included in several guidelines for the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).The way it might work is uncertain.It was developed by Francine Shapiro in the 1990s and has been controversial, with some critics calling it pseudoscience and there have been ongoing concerns over the quality of evidence, contradictory findings, significant rates of researcher bias. and dropout rates in studies.
