Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) following homicide

Description

Homicide perpetrators have been observed to report symptoms of PTSD directly related to involvement in the offense itself. A single-case study is presented, which describes the application of eye-movement desensitization and reprocessing for a male perpetrator of homicide. The nature of the difficulties these offenders experience is considered and the need for appropriate psychological intervention in such cases is discussed.
