EMDR Aid

CNET Editors' review

EMDR Aid allows users to continue Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing therapy outside their therapist's office. The program's simple interface and functions make it an attractive treatment option.

EMDR should be performed only with the guidance of a qualified therapist, and EMDR Aid makes it clear that this program is not for self-diagnosis or treatment. In fact, users looking to treat themselves without professional guidance will likely be disappointed in this program; there's not much to it. For therapists and their clients who have established an EMDR treatment plan, however, this program may be useful. The interface is simple. Users first select the duration of their session in 30-second increments from 30 to 180 seconds (an unlimited options is also available). Users then watch a black square move back and forth across a white field, with an optional tone sounding each time the square hits an edge. Users can control the speed and direction of the square's movement. EMDR Aid has no Help file to speak of, although it does offer some basic information about how EMDR works and post-traumatic stress disorder. The missing Help file is not much of a problem, as the program's functions are limited and obvious to those familiar with this treatment method.

EMDR Aid is free, and it installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to therapists and their clients who are looking for an easy way to continue EMDR treatment at home.

    "Decent freeware - Needs MS hotfix"

    March 13, 2011  |   By H2oGrrl

    Version: EMDR Aid 4.1

    Pros

    Once the "comctl32.ocx" Microsoft hotfix is applied the freeware does what it says it does in a very simple and easy to use way.

    Cons

    The user has to apply a hotfix and/or find the missing file online and register it on the PC.

    Summary

    It would be nice if the software Dev's corrected the missing file issue, but it's freeware so don't expect them to spend much time fixing a Windows compatibility issue. Here's how to take care of it yourself if you want to give the software a go.

    1. Search for the missing file "comctl32.ocx" online.
    2. (optional) Run a quick virus scan on the file.
    3. Copy it to the "C:\windows\system32" folder.
    4. Register the file: Start > Run > (type) regsvr32 comctl32.ocx

    "DOESN'T WORK!! MISSING FILE!!"

    January 16, 2011  |   By DeseretFlower

    Version: EMDR Aid 4.1

    Pros

    I have downloaded this software several times on two different computers. IT DOESN'T WORK. All I get after the initial screen is that there's a missing file. Big waste of time.

    Cons

    I have downloaded this software several times on two different computers. IT DOESN'T WORK. All I get after the initial screen is that there's a missing file. Big waste of time.

    Summary

    Would be nice if it would work.

    Updated on Apr 2, 2011

    Well, thanks to H2oGrrl's review (thanks, H2oGrrl!!), I was able to use the program. I would upgrade it to maybe 2 stars--2.5 stars if Cnet would let me. For one thing, once I set the session length, I couldn't find any way to change it, even when I exited and reopened the program. There were no adjustments or help of any kind. Also, it's a small window which you CANNOT maximize, so you need to put your face much closer to the screen or your eyes won't get the movement required. Personally, I'm sorry I wasted my time on getting EMDR Aid. But H2oGrrl's suggestion did work.
