EMDR Lite is a simple and inexpensive mini software utility to demonstrate the EMDR process. EMDR Lite has:

  • fixed background sounds / images / movement
  • woosh beep
  • optional classical music background
  • auditory movement only {center of screen}
  • optional semi subliminal textual messages
    • relaxed / calm / at peace
    • positive / optimistic
    • calm / confident

EMDR Lite is not suitable for use by therapists to treat patients. EMDR Lite demonstrates the basic EMDR process when used for EMDR training or client demonstration purposes.

NOTE: The programming language used to develop EMDR Lite is very much more limited than the programming languages used to develop EMDR Pro/Home. For the best possible software based EMDR treatment with smooth high quality animation and multimedia capabilities we strongly advise that professional therapists or those wishing to treat themselves use EMDR Pro.
