The EMDR bandwagon
Shapiro, in her response to Metter and Michelson, criticizes that their failure to replicate must have been because they used an 'aberrant version' of her technique. She cites many uncontrolled case reports, but her original 1989 publication remains the only 'controlled study' in print. Her original report did not include an alternative treatment condition or between groups analysis, only included moderate level and temporally distant traumas that patients were already consciously aware.of.. and did not control for expectancy or suggestion effects.
