Utilization of EMDR in crisis intervention

Description

A crisis or traumatic situation occurs when a person is involved in a situation that results in an overwhelming sense of vulnerability and/or lack of control (Solomon, 1995). These situations can shatter basic assumptions about how the world works, interfering with the victim’s ability to assimilate and accommodate the event (Janoff-Bulman, 1992). Three major themes that commonly need to be addressed by victims of critical incidents are 1) responsibility for the event, 2) personal vulnerability and lack of safety, and 3) issues of control and self-efficacy (Shapiro, 1995).
