Traumatic Incident Reduction, Visual-Kinesthetic Dissociation, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, and Thought Field Therapy were investigated through a systematic clinical demonstration (SCD) methodology. This methodology guides the…

A special series on Thought Field Therapy in the Journal of Clinical Psychology provides an opportunity for psychologists to learn about techniques and theories outside the mainstream of our field. Unfortunately, by publishing this series of…

Although several efficacious treatments for PTSD exist, these treatments are currently underutilized in clinical practice. To address this issue, research must better identify barriers to dissemination of these treatments. This study investigated…

The clinical phenomena of the conduct of EMDR and Thought Field Therapy were interpreted in light of concepts in the field of classical conditioning with emphasis on the orienting reflex and its external inhibiting effects on conditioned responses. A…

In recent years, increasing numbers of therapists have discovered the effectiveness of neurologically based therapy techniques, such as Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and Thought Field Therapy (TFT), not only for trauma, but for…

Observing that there has been a rapid increase in the number of practitioners trained in both eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) and the energy psychotherapies, the authors describe ways to combine these modalities to increase their…

Even a skilled EMDR therapist often experiences that the adaptive information processing (AIP) does not go well. Since human existence is multi-layered and open system, so negative factors to consolidate traumatic memories before, during, and…

I have found that more traditional models of psychological healing, such as self-object relations, ego psychology, cognitive behaviorism, and developmental psychology, along with theories of trauma, dissociation, and attachment, are invaluable in…

This article discusses the challenges that working with PTSD clients present to therapists who wish to avoid vicarious traumatization. In addition, the work of Charles Figley and Joyce Carbonell to further understanding and treatment of PTSD is…

Of course, not all therapists who learn TFT stick to it exclusively. Many combine talk therapy with both TFT and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), in which a client recalls a traumatic memory while moving his or her eyes in a…

The purpose of this chapter is to critically examine novel or controversial interventions for psychological trauma and its sequelae. Because the field of trauma treatment has recently witnessed a substantial increase in unusual treatments with…

A psychiatric nurse therapist describes his experience of suffering a mental disorder, variously diagnosed as PTSD, obsessive compulsive disorder, and panic disorder, and variously treated by a succession of therapists with strong orientations to…

Objective: Advocates of new therapies frequently make bold claims regarding therapeutic effectiveness, particularly in response to disorders which have been traditionally treatment-refractory. This paper reviews a collection of new therapies…

Recent "Power Therapies" claim near miraculous cures but fare less well under controlled testing. These developments recall for cognitive behavior therapists the history of past "cures" that temporarily induced high levels of expectancies, but failed…

Poole, de Jongh and Spector ask for empirical research rather than emotive arguments when evaluating EMDR. When one applies this standard, Poole et al.s remaining points are devoid of substance. EMDR, like other Power Therapies, is a miracle cure…

Traumatic Incident Reduction, Visual-Kinesthetic Disassociation, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, and Thought Field Therapy were investigated through a systematic clinical demonstration (SCD) methodology. This methodology guides the…

The authors take as specific exemplars two of the popularized "power therapies" -- eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) and thought field therapy (TFT) -- to demonstrate the influence of pseudoscience in the contemporary trauma…

Part 2 of this paper focuses on possible active, change-producing elements of the four therapies for PTSD included in the Active Ingredients Demonstration Project (Figley, C and Carbonell, J., 1995). The methods studied were Eye Movement…

Part 1 of this essay summarized data and summarized the methods studied in the 'Active Ingredients' Project. Part 2 explores possible change-producing ingredients germane to each as well as across the methods

Los efectos psicológicos del trauma se expresan como cambios en la respuesta biológica al stress, produciendo alteraciones profundas en los mecanismos hormonales relacionados con éste, y en el procesamiento de la memoria. A partir de 1994, cuando el…

Power Therapies claim to achieve rapid results in reducing fear elicited by a large number of situations. This paper presents a theory of how competition among stimuli may be the basis for how the Power Therapies work. The compelling features of…

The treatment of dissociative disorders, PTSD, eating disorders, and phobias is frequently difficult and traumatic for the client. One author (LG) has been treating clients with a combination of hypnosis, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing…
