I've searched through the forums for a sticky regarding common abbreviations but I didn't see one. I'm new to the site and a lot of the abbreviations. What does EMDR mean? Is there a thread regarding abbreviations. Thanks. smile.gif

Not as far as I'm aware. EMDR is eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing.
DV, SA, R, CSA, RA... are domestic violence, sexual assault, rape, child sexual abuse, ritual abuse
I'm sure you can ask if you don't understand or put it into google smile.gif
