Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing and stress: Research, theory and practical suggestions

Description

This chapter addresses several things. First, we consider the key features of eye-movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), its theoretical foundations, and later its integration with other therapies. We consider the merits of the key (and controversial) components of EMDR and discuss the integration of EMDR in psychotherapy. We then consider the efficacy of EMDR in posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and examine meta-analyses and studies that evaluate this therapeutic program. We rate the salient studies of EMDR and PTSD. Then we discuss EMDR and its limitations and contraindications. Finally, we present the EMDR protocol and three cases that demonstrate the use of EMDR.
