Samenvatting

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (emdr) is een van de snelst groeiende interventies uit de annalen van de psychotherapie. Hoewel veel psychologen emdr bekritiseerden vanwege de ongewone oorsprong en verspreiding, laat de geschiedenis vele overeenkomsten zien met het mesmerisme, een therapie die zich gedurende de 18e eeuw snel verspreidde in Europa en Amerika. Dit artikel beschrijft de opvallende gelijkenissen tussen de geschiedenis van het mesmerisme en de geschiedenis van emdr.
