I agree with everything you have said and added to my earlier comment. In my earlier post, however, I didn't want to imply that EMDR "could not" be explained. In fact counter conditioning theory is very close to the way I see it...I prefer to see it as reciprocal inhibition theory which I think is much more dynamic (citing Albert Bandura). However nothing has directly stated to my knowledge that say performing such a reconditioning would change mood in the specific area of a trauma. I was in this vein that I made the comment you cited (EMDR was like no other). Similarly, systematic desensitization is like no other. But both can be explained by behavioral theory and, probably by associative learning theory quite adaquately. To my knowledge Shapiro does not perport a theory of personality nor of change. You have made some valuable additions to my comment.
