A look at EMDR:  Technique, research, and use with college students


Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), often resulting in dramatic symptom relief in clients, has become an increasingly popular treatment for Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and a variety of other diagnoses and symptoms. EMDR may prove more effective and timely than other methods in treating college students for a number of common presenting concerns, particularly within the framework of the brief therapy model. The following article will provide an overview of the process of and theory behind EMDR treatment, and the current research on its outcomes. The use of EMDR in treating college students will then be considered.
