When a PTSD survivor becomes pregnant: Implications for EMDR treatment

Description

There are many questions and issues concerning the use of EMDR in the treastment of pregnant PTSD survivors. I think Tom Cloyd's EMDR Portal summary of the issues involved in the EMDR treatment of pregnant women who suffer from PTSD is a wonderful opening to an in-depth discussion of the subject. Since approximately one out of four women (USA National Child Abuse statistics) are survivors of childhood sexual abuse, and many of these have a diagnosis of PTSD, a not inconsiderable number of pregnant women at any given time are going to have PTSD symptoms.
