January, 1997 Update on the information gap in the EMDR controversy
This entry updates: [Greenwald, R. (1996, February). The information gap in the EMDR controversy. Professional Psychology: Research & Practice, 27(1), 67-72]. In the 1996 article I argued that EMDR has been shown to be quite effective, particularly as a treatment for specific traumatic memories; and that contrary results can be explained by substandard practice (i.e., that EMDR per se was not being tested). It would follow that well-designed studies, involving therapists who are careful to use the EMDR protocol correctly, should yield positive results. In the case of EMDR, these results should be not merely equal to other established treatments, but far superior, as in other, similar studies.
