How to end the EMDR controversy
Discusses how the controversy concerning eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR; F. Shapiro, 1995) can be resolved. It is proposed that EMDR advocates must document the efficacy of EMDR with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) patients and must replicate these findings at least once. It is suggested that EMDR theorists should provide a psychologically plausible explanation of the role of eye movements in enhancing the efficacy of exposure therapy.
