EMDR - En kontroversiel behandling

EMDR - A controversial treatment

Description

Baggrund: Den 30.09.1994 fløj jeg til Amsterdam. Formålet med rejsen var at deltage i en workshop, hvor jeg skulle lære en ny behandlingsmetode til brug for klienter, der lider af Post Traumatisk Stress Syndrom (PTSD). Min interesse for dette klientel var vakt, da jeg i 1993 var blevet tilknyttet Falcks Redningskorps Psykolognetværk. Samme år deltog jeg i et seminar som Falck arrangerede. Underviseren var den karismatiske norske psykolog, Atle Dyregrov (AD). Han omtalte den amerikanske psykolog, Francine Shapiro (FS), og den særlige behandling hun havde udviklet og som hun benævnte EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitiazion and Reprocessing). AD redegjorde for, at man endnu savnede fuldgyldig videnskabelig dokumentation for behandlingens effektivitet, men at der allerede forelå så mange indikationer på behandlingens effekt, at man kunne regne med, at det kun var et spørgsmål om tid, før en sikker dokumentation var i hus.

My interest in this clientele was aroused when I in 1993 was associated with Falck rescue corps Psychologist Network. That year, I attended a seminar which Falck arranged. The teacher was the charismatic Norwegian psychologist Atle Dyregrov (AD). He said the American psychologist Francine Shapiro (FS), and the special treatment she had developed and which she named EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitiazion and Reprocessing). AD explained that currently lacked conclusive scientific evidence for the efficacy of treatment, but that there was already so many indications of treatment effect that one could assume that it was only a matter of time before a certain documentation was in house.
