Letters: EMDR therapy works
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing is an accepted, validated and approved treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder by the APA and solidly based on rigorous, head-to- head research with various other methods. This research has been published in refereed clinical journals over a number of years, and has proven to produce robust results when compared with other methods. Further, it is not hypnotic: While there is a light trance state induced during the treatment, it is not the same type produced during hypnosis. The associated EEG pattern is different that that of the hypnotic trance.
