Some advocated a controversial form of therapy called eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing (EMDR), which involves asking the patient to focus on the therapist's moving finger as they recall the unpleasant memories. The condition became…

This article summarizes research findings presented at the APA Annual Convention that found eye-movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) to be as beneficial or more beneficial than other treatments for posttraumatic stress disorder.

Determining Readiness for EMDR Trauma Processing: • Neither diagnosis nor trauma history determine readiness for trauma processing or response to treatment • Though studies often exclude subjects with suicidal ideation, dissociation or substance…

This is a practical guide to objectively scored measures of child/adolescent post-traumatic stress symptoms. It is geared to the field-based researcher and the practicing clinician, who must balance scientific value with the limitations inherent in…

A recent review [by Rubin] summarized research studies investigating EMDR treatment of PTSD. Rubin identified populations in which there has been insufficient research to determine what treatments, if any, are effective, and he articulated questions…

As Shapiro points out, controversy has surrounded Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) since it was first described. Although some of this controversy pertains to training methods and clinical issues (see the Behavior Therapist,…
