Treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder using eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing: two case studies

Description

In my experience of using EMDR with clients from Latin American backgrounds, a number of old traumatic experiences emerge earlier in the process of therapy than conventional psychotherapeutic treatment. These memories were mainly related to life threatening situations experienced in their countries of origin due to organised violence.Two cases will illustrate the clinical use of EMDR. These clients came from Argentina and Central America suffering from PTSD at the time of treatment.
