Eye Movement Integration (EMI) is a powerful and yet very simple neurotherapeutic tool to effectively help clients who suffer from recurrent and negative memories from any traumatizing experience, including those with PTSD. The approach was created by Connirae and Steve Andreas in 1989, and has been substantially modified and developed since that time by Dr. Danie Beaulieu.
EMI uses eye movements to allow the client to access memory traces andto integrate traumatic memories with amelio-rating information. Eye movements and theircorrelation to thought processes have longbeen the subject of intense interest among NLPresearchers. Robert Diltz and others showedthat, in the absence of visual distractors. thedirection of our eye movements is related tothe sensory content of the thoughts or memo-ries we are focusing on (Dilts. 1990).
Steve Andreas, M.A., was introduced to NLP in 1977, and was one of the first in a small group to be certified as NLP practitioner, master practitioner, and trainer by the co-developers in 1979, along with his partner, Connirae. He and Connirae co-edited four of the early classic Bandler/Grinder books, Frogs into Princes, Trance-formations, Reframing, and Using Your Brain—for a CHANGE. Steve and Connirae together wrote Heart of the Mind, and Change Your Mind—and Keep the Change. Steve has also written Virginia Satir: The Patterns of her Magic, modeling how Satir used NLP principles in her work with families, and Transforming Your Self: Becoming Who You Want To Be, modeling the submodality structure of self-concept and how to change it quickly and easily.
Eye Movement Integration, NLP's kinder and gentler version of EMDR is used to resolve a Vietnam Veteran's PTSD flashbacks. This video shows the beginning and end of the 55 minute session -- where he describes the tracer bullets in the night as "pretty."
