The use of eye movement desensitization and reprocessing in motor vehicle accident trauma

Description

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMD/R) is an effective treatment used in the Veterans Ad­ministration System with combat veterans and also with rape/molestation victims. The technique may be applied success­fully to motor vehicle accident-induced psychological trauma. Subtleties in its use and training availability will be noted to insure client safety. Clinical case reports illustrate reduction or elimi­nation of flash­backs, night­mares and other sleep dis­tur­bances, anxiety while driving and traveling; avoidance be­havior and cognitive distor­tions re­lat­ing to the victim's post-accident adjustment.
