Counterpoint: Evaluating EMDR in treating PTSD
EMDR: Is Psychiatry Missing the Boat? (point) EMDR in Treating PTSD (counterpoint) This discussion focuses on the efficacy of Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), a highly controversial treatment for patients with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The point article stresses the extensive body of literature that shows the efficacy and safety of EMDR as a treatment protocol. It also explains the treatment process. The counterpoint article argues that much of the research supporting EMDR may not be methodologically sound and that attempting to make statements of efficacy based on the current literature may not be wise.
