Some Marxist reflections on a decadent capitalist ‘battle’: The CBT/EMDR War
This paper comes with a health warning. The intention of this paper is twofold: firstly to highlight the absurdity of two psychological treatments attacking each other, Eye Movement Desensitisation & Reprocessing (EMDR) and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), both of whom are recommended by the National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) in the treatment of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and secondly to question the use of the medium of scientific literature as a forum for a territorial rather than academic debate. Rather than fall into the ‘trap’ that other authors have done and support either or even give any credence to a blow-by-blow account from the ‘inside’ of the battle, the author has written from a ‘non-aligned’ Marxist standpoint and provided a possible solution.
