Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing in individual psychology

Description

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a relatively new treatment modality originally developed for treating individuals with PTSD. This article summarizes the growing research base supporting the effectiveness of EMDR, including addressing psychobiological findings related to the treatment of PTSD using EMDR. The 8-stage EMDR treatment approach is presented, followed by a discussion of the compatibility of EMDR and Individual Psychology. Case examples are presented to demonstrate the incorporation of EMDR into Adlerian-based psychotherapy.
