Occurrence and treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder in an elderly patient after a traffic accident

Description

In our present study, we report on the development of PTSD after a traffic accident and present the trauma-specific treatment with Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). Despite the controversy about its novelty and other competing trauma-specific treatment methods like CBT, EMDR seems to be an effective and efficient trauma-specific treatment method particularly for usage by pscyhodynamic oriented therapists.
