EMDRIA has submitted comments critical of the Institute of Medicine (IOM) report commissioned by the Department of Veterans Affairs to assess the scientific evidence on treatment modalities for PTSD. The 2007 report concluded that “the evidence is…

Lipke's criticisms of the experiment reported by Bates and colleagues are without merit. Data from the experiment show either that the procedure was sound or that the clinical measurement reported by eye-movement densitization (EMD) therapists is…

I have different replies to the two responses to my recent paper (Corrigan, 2001). Thanks to Gaynor (2002) for providing single-subject evidence about Functional Analytic Psychotherapy (FAP). My goal was not to dismiss FAP or any of the other…

Excerpt, In my experience over the past 15 years, I've found that many people with trauma histories respond to eye movement de-sensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) therapy with psychotherapy when it is done in a competent manner, there is a trusting…

Behandling av barn och ungdomar med eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) har föga vetenskaplig grund. Ändå används metoden av många psykologer, ibland som ett universalmedel mot alla möjliga psykiska besvär. Treatment of children and…

Several authors have found smaller hippocampal volumes in patients with PTSD and some have suggested that psychotropic drugs may promote hippocampus neurogenesis and reverse the decrease in hippocampus volume.1 However, the only study that has…

Comments on an article by E. B. Foa and G. P. Street,"Women and Traumatic Events, Journal of Clinical Psychiatry, Vol 62(Suppl 17), 2001. Special issue: Understanding posttraumatic stress disorder, pp. 29-34 regarding psychotherapeutic interventions…

The writer comments on the use of eye movement desensitization treatment and treatment evaluation.

Rosen argues that the eye movements experienced by Shapiro during the incident leading to her development of eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) could not, as she later inferred, have been saccadic. The present author disputes…

Många personer som exponerats för traumatisk stress kan inte verbalisera sina upplevelser och känslor vilket försvårar krisbearbetningen. En del av dessa riskerar psykisk invaliditet, posttraumatiskt stresssyndrom (PTSD).Many people who were exposed…

These letters criticize alleged omissions in a review of the literature on treatment of PTSD.

Author points out a propensity among some professionals to respond unfairly to data supporting EMDR, and he calls for open-minded critical analysis of available data.

Argues that the utility of EMDR as a treatment for PTSD and other disorders is not compromised because the technique is not grounded in established theory.

"Healing Hands" described the efforts by trauma counselors to confront the shock and grief caused by the tsunami [April 4]. It was wonderful to see in the photo of people from the Thai village where Jane Lopacka is providing trauma therapy that they…

The article ‘Eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing. A matter for serious consideration?’ by Jeanette Senior (July 2001) points to a number of interesting questions and areas of uncertainty regarding EMDR, such as its expanding range of…

As my ‘nimblewittedness’ and ‘misguided parody’ were dismissed by Brenda Roberts and Nel Walker (Letters, July 2002), perhaps I ought to explain my point of view less humorously.

While appreciating that The Psychologist is not a standard academic journal, I was nevertheless somewhat surprised and not a little disappointed to see space being given to an uncritical ‘sales pitch’ for EMDR in the March issue. While Shapiro…

The article on eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing (‘In the blink of an eye’, March 2002) brings new hope of recognition to rolled-up newspaper therapy (RUNT). Your more knowledgeable readers will be aware that I discovered RUNT…

I have no involvement with EMDR and cannot comment on the claims and counterclaims for its efficacy or theoretical basis. However, those working to assess claim and counterclaim will not be well guided if they accept at face value Robert Forde’s view…

Thank you for publishing Anna Costin’s interesting article ‘Psychology in Gaza and the West Bank’ (May 2006). I recently went to the West Bank as part of an ongoing EMDR Humanitarian Assistance Programs (HAP) project, at the invitation of East…

The news analysis article on disaster planning from a psychological viewpoint in the December issue (‘Healing the wounds of the mind’) described EMDR as ‘eye movement desensitisation and reprogramming’. The correct name is of course ‘eye movement…

Reply by the current author to the comments made by E.M. Corrigan and J. Jennett (see record 2004-16054-010) on the original article (see record 2003-05653-002). They describe a 29-year-old woman with an obsessive compulsive disorder relapse…

Letter to the editor commenting on an article by E. Ernst (see record 2003-05653-002). We report the case of a patient who was effectively treated for severe obsessive compulsive disorder but relapsed briefly following ingestion of herbal products…

In summary, we submit that the evidence cited by Lipke in support of the proposal that eye movements contribute to treatment outcome does not meet the burden of proof. Specifically, eye movements and other laterally alternating stimuli have not been…

I am a practitioner of Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). The writer evidently knows little if anything about EMDR as she claims it is "hypnotic" and leaves clients open to suggestions (of sexual abuse) during the procedure. During…

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing is an accepted, validated and approved treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder by the APA and solidly based on rigorous, head-to- head research with various other methods. This research has been…
