On PTSD

Description

It was disappointing that the Institute of Medicine (IoM) panel findings gave so links coverage to Eye Movement Desensirizacion and Reprocessing (EMDR). As a clinician in private practice who has treated active-duty military personnel, the clear advantage that EMDR has over the other treatments for PTSD is how quickly it works and that it is less painful for the client. Exposure therapy can be excruciating for the client and has a high drop-out rate as a result. Medication for PTSD only treats the symptoms.
