The workshop will consist of a review of the 8-phases of standard EMDR procedures, the Adaptive Information Processing Model, and the supposed mechanisms of EMDR re-processing, “transmutation” and “reconsolidation” of memory. A live demonstration of…

Research has consistently demonstrated that performance is degraded when participants engage in two simultaneous tasks that require the same working memory resources. This study tested predictions from working memory theory to investigate the effects…

米国社会では,ベトナム戦争や湾岸戦争後に遭遇した心理病理的現象,即ち帰還兵のPTSD (post traumatic stress disorder)が,それ以前から親から子へと引き継がれる率が高いとい う点で憂慮されてきたPTSDと同様大きな社会問題となっていた。患者とその家族,そして治 療にあたってきた臨床家が苦悩するなか,ある偶発的経験から撃星のように現れた心理療法 が, F. ShapiroのEMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and…

1999年代に入って室長のように出現してきた画期的心理療法(“quantum psychotherapy”) EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing)の歴史的背景,現在の位置とそ の重要性については,すでに(Ⅰ)で述べた。本研究「心理療法におけるEMDRのメカニズム」 は臨床に寄与するため,以下の未解決になっている課題を,シリーズで神経心理学的視点から 解明しようとしている。Innovative therapy has…

Neuroimaging has been shown to be a powerful tool to investigate EMDR neurobiological correlates demonstrating a clear association between normalization of brain functional changes and symptoms regression. In the recent past, a series of EEG…

眼动脱敏与再加工(Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing ,以下简称EMDR) 由Francine Shapiro 于1987 年创立,最初仅为眼动脱敏( EMD) ,1991 年发展为眼动脱敏与再加工,其中眼动脱敏仅是EMDR 中双侧刺激的一种,而双侧刺激是EMDR 操作中众多组分的一部分。EMDR 是一种整合的心理疗法,它借鉴了控制论(cybernetics)…

Er zijn verschillende theorieën over de werkingsmechanismen van EMDR. De belangrijkste theorieën zullen kort worden toegelicht en het wetenschappelijk bewijs ervoor samengevat. Vervolgens zullen we een serie eigen experimenten presenteren: drie…

This article challenges the notion that EMDR is solely a treatment for PTSD. It invites debate if this assertion appears to readers as questionable. It is my contention that, whilst much more research needs to be carried out, the current successful…

A growing number of clinical studies indicate that EMDR is an effective intervention for PTSD. Yet, despite these successes, researchers do not fully understand exactly how the EMDRprotocol works. Specifically, researchers are still trying to isolate…

Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) is a therapeutic approach guided by the adaptive information processing (AIP) model. This article provides a brief overview of some of the major precepts of AIP. The basis of clinical pathology is…

EMDR is now considered as an elective treatment for PTSD and its efficacy is being proved in several other psychological conditions. Nevertheless, the EMDR underlying mechanisms of action have not yet been fully clarified. At the moment being,…

This study aimed to objectivize the quality of smooth pursuit eye movements in a standard laboratory task before and after an Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) session run on seven healthy volunteers. EMDR was applied on…

Introduction: This article examines the history and development of Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), from Dr. Francine Shapiro's original discovery in 1987, to current findings and future directions for research and clinical…

It has repeatedly been shown that eye movements during retrieval of negative memories reduce their emotionality. In this presentation we will present a series of analogue studies (with undergraduate students) which further investigates the role of…

La desensibilización y reprocesamiento mediante movimientos oculares (EMDR) es un abordaje terapéutico que está guiado por el modelo de procesamiento adaptativo de la información (PAI). Este artículo proporciona una breve visión de conjunto de…

El corazón del EMDR involucra la transmutación de estas experiencias almacenadas disfuncionalmente a una resolución adaptativa que promueve la salud psicológica.The heart of EMDR involves the transmutation of these stored experiences dysfunctional to…

Numerous studies have provided evidence for the efficacy of eye movement desensitization and reprocessing therapy (EMDR) in the treatment of PTSD, including recent studies showing it to be more efficient than therapist-directed flooding. But few…

The evidence so far that eye movements are of therapeutic value is, say Stephen Joseph and P Alex Linley, not convincing; the effectiveness of EMDR can probably be attributed to imaginal exposure.

Numerous studies have shown that eye movements during recall of negative memories reduce their emotionality. We investigated whether these findings can be extended specifically to negative memories of loss. Sixty undergraduate students participated…

Das Traumabearbeitungsverfahren EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) kombiniert die imaginäre Exposition mit der traumatischen Erinnerung mit repetitiver Stimulation durch Augenbewegungen oder durch taktile bzw. auditive Reize.…

Assessing traumatic experiences is crucial for creating an individual case formulation within the treatment of psychotic symptoms. It enhances insight and reveals relevant targets for treatment with EMDR. Yet, trauma histories are often very…

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is considered highly efficacious for the treatment of Post-traumatic Stress Disorder and has proved to be a valid treatment approach with a wide range of applications. However, EMDR’s mechanisms of…
