Shapiro’s response (to Steketee and Goldstein)
Steketee's and Goldstein's thoughtful comments concentrate on the need for empirical study of EMDR and I could not agree more. Treatment outcome research is notoriously scarce and traditionally lags far behind clinical practice. For instance, 13 years after PTSD was officially classified in the 1980 DSM-111, only six controlled clinical treatment studies were cited in the published literature (Solomon, 1992) and four of these were limited to male Vietnam combat veterans.
