Response to “Comment on Hembree and Foa (2003)”

Description

In summary, we submit that the evidence cited by Lipke in support of the proposal that eye movements contribute to treatment outcome does not meet the burden of proof. Specifically, eye movements and other laterally alternating stimuli have not been shown to have an effect on relevant and independently assessed outcome measures of symptoms, such as measures of PTSD severity. Thus, we reaffirm Hembree and Foa's conclusion that assertions about an important role for eye movements or any other laterally alternating stimuli on treatment outcome have not been supported by extant research.
