Translation and adaption of the EMDR protcol to the Iranian culture
Francine Shapiro's eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) treatment and training manual (1995, 2001) was translated into Persian and reviewed for cross-cultural adaptation. The EMDR Persian translated edition was clinically tested in the earthquake stricken regions of Bam and Zarand in southern Iran. Therapists using this manual provided feedback in the form of an email questionnaire. According to this feedback, the manual was useful for training therapists to administer EMDR therapy in Iran. A more recent proposal for the neurobiological basis of EMDR therapy, which I have co-authored, is presented in this dissertation project. It addresses EMDR as a physical healing process that will have further acceptance by Iranians and the Iranian medical community.
