A reply to the Institute of Medicine report commissioned by the Department of Veterans Affairs to assess the scientific evidence on treatment modalities for posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

Description

EMDRIA has submitted comments critical of the Institute of Medicine (IOM) report commissioned by the Department of Veterans Affairs to assess the scientific evidence on treatment modalities for PTSD. The 2007 report concluded that “the evidence is inadequate to determine the efficacy of EMDR in the treatment of PTSD.” The response, authored by Dr. Christopher Lee, Research Chair, and reviewed by the Research Committee, details serious omissions and misinterpretations of the scientific literature that would have effected the conclusions about EMDR in the report. Dr. Lee also prepared a PowerPoint presentation for EMDRIA members to use.
