EMDR: Implications of the use of reprocessing therapy in nursing practice
Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR). Purpose: To examine the available evidence base for EMDR treatment in psychiatric nursing practice. Sources: Evidenced-based research findings, published case and anecdotal reports, and primary source documents on the development of the treatment method. Conclusions: EMDR use remains controversial. Although it is safe, little is known regarding the mechanism of action of any therapeutic effect; more rigorous empirical establishment of efficacy is needed.
