A single session EMDR study with twenty traumatized children and adolescents

Description

Twenty children and adolescents were treated for a single traumatic memory with a single session of eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR). Treatment was delayed 1 m for half the group. Over half of the 20 participants moved from Clinical to Normal levels on the Impact of Events Scale, and all but 3 showed at least partial symptom relief on several measures at 1-3 m following a single EMDR session. Results should be interpreted with caution, but were positive, and essentially consistent with analogous findings of EMDR with adults.
