  • Collection: EMDR Collection

A combined research project by two universities has shown that an innovative treatment that involves rapid eye movements is reducing the symptoms of post-traumatic stress in trauma patients.

Hall described EMDR as an evidence-based treatment for complex trauma such as post-traumatic stress disorder. EMDR is known to alleviate some of the symptoms. EMDR, which is unlike other therapies because eye movements play a role, is for individuals…

In an investigation of the interhemispheric coherence (IhC) model for eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) bilateral eye movement (BEM) effects, 30 participants were exposed to a stationary dot, a blinking red/green dot, or saccadic…

He was even afraid of the bedroom he shared with his wife. Panic attacks also interfered with his job. After trying prescription medication, he eventually turned to clinical psychotherapist Carmen Collier for help at New Wellness Associates in Green…

"Self-Directed use of Eye Movements Sets for Stress Reduction" is an explicit topic in Francine Shapiro's Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (1995)--see p. 236. It pioneering use with children is documented below, but this way of doing it…

In this presentation we will briefly summarize research on the role of eye movements (EM) in negative, positive and neutral images. We will discuss the results in light of the working memory hypothesis and discuss important clinical implications. EM…

Background and objectives: Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is an evidence-based treatment for PTSD. Research suggests that it may aid addiction treatment. An experiment was conducted to determine effects of EMDR on cigarette…

EMDR seems to be working through taxation of the working memory. A large amount of research has been carried out demonstrating that vividness and emotionality of negative images declines when working memory is taxed while the charged image is…

The purpose of the study was to examine the effects of bilateral left right saccade eye movements (BEM) versus fixation (FIX) along the median plane on the SUD related to negative autobiographic events. BEM or FIX were stimulated with visual-acoustic…

We have reported that cerebral blood flow in Orbito Frontal Cortex increased, and blood flow in the Transverse temporal gyrus decreased with desensitization(Ichii et al, 2012). We collected the data of cerebral blood flow and other physical indices…

The effect of bilateral stimulation in RDI(Resource Development and Installation) is controversy. Hornsveld et.al (2011) concluded that effectiveness of eye movements is questionable in RDI or safe place. However, in EMDR training many trainers teach…

In this presentation we will briefly summarize research on the role of eye movements (EM) in negative, positive and neutral images. We will discuss the results in light of the working memory hypothesis and discuss important clinical implications. EM…

EMDR was initially developed by Francine Shapiro (1989a, 1989b) to reduce the distress of traumatic memories. After initial reports of high success rates in treating PTSD within a short period of time, EMDR quickly became the focus of much debate and…

In "Can Eye Movements Treat Trauma?" [Head Lines], Tori Rodriguez cites new evidence that eye movements are an effective ingredient in eye movement de sensitization and reprocessing (EMDR). In our column "Taking a Closer Look" [Facts and Fictions in…

Handedness can be used as a marker for interhemispheric interaction, which can produce memory benefits. Bilateral saccadic eye movements can be used to manipulate levels of interhemispheric interaction. This study measured the effects of handedness…

EMDR, sigle qui signifie Eyes Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, peut se traduire par Intégration neuro-émotionnelle par les mouvements oculaires. Découverte en 1987 aux Etats-Unis par Francine Shapiro, l'EMDR est un traitement de choix pour…

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) (Shapiro, 2001) is a comprehensive, integrative psychotherapeutic approach. It contains elements of a number of effective psychotherapies in structured protocols that are designed to maximize…

Objectives: Previous research has shown that bilaterally alternating eye movements enhance episodic memory retrieval. This effect has been considered an important mechanism of the therapeutic effects of eye movement desensitization and reprocessing…

Objectives: Recently, Interest has been increase on the cognitive and emotional effects of bilateral eye movement. However, there is little research related to the subject in Korea. In this study, we evaluated the effects of bilateral eye movement to…

Background and Objectives: Eye movements (EM) during recall of an aversive memory is a treatment element unique to Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). Experimental studies have shown that EM reduce memory vividness and/or…

The field of PTSD treatment has witnessed a rapid growth of new treatment protocols, the most studied of which is undoubtedly EMDR. EMDR is an information processing therapy during which the patient recounts the traumatic event with its cognitive,…

And the group that you work with, the Boston Area Trauma Recovery Network, has a very specific type of treatment you use in these cases? Yes, we do. We offer pro bono EMDR therapy. EMDR stands for eye movement desensitization and reprocessing, and it…

Craving vormt de kern van instandhouding van verslaving en mentale beeldvorming behelst een groot deel van craving. In dit onderzoek werd craving naar voedsel opgewekt door de mentale beeldvorming van het favoriete voedsel. Het effect van…

Roken vormt wereldwijd de meest te voorkomen doodsoorzaak (Vleeming, Rambali & Opperhuizen, 2002; van Zundert, 2011). Het is belangrijk om nieuwe effectieve behandelingen te ontwikkelen voor rookverslaving, omdat goede behandelingen voor het…

Entdeckerin und Entwicklerin der Methode ist Francine Shapiro Ph. D., eine Forscherin am Mental Research Institute in Palo Alto (Kalifornien). Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) fand zuerst Anwendung bei den psychotraumatischen…

L’approche EMDR est caractérisée à la fois par une démarche thérapeutique rigoureuse et une grande créativité dans l’utilisation des outils cliniques. Lors de l’application du protocole en 8 étapes, il est souhaitable que nous utilisions la porte…

Earlier this year we published a paper that gave an up-to-date review of the evidence for whether eye movement had an effect in facilitating the processing of trauma memories (Lee & Cuijpers, 2013). In this paper we did a meta-analysis to look at…

Memories that are recalled while working memory (WM) is taxed, e.g., by making eye movements (EM), become blurred during the recall + EM and later recall, without EM. This may help to explain the effects of Eye Movement and Desensitisation and…

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is treated psychologically with exposure and cognitive restructuring techniques. Shapiro's (1995) Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) treatment for PTSD involves imaginal exposure, cognitive…
