Treating disordered sleep with EMDR
Evidence from sleep laboratories shows that disordered sleep is a prominent feature of PTSD. The Pittsburg Sleep Quality Index will be illustrated. Evidence will be presented for the hypothesis that a third state of brain activity, neither waking nor sleeping is accessed during the eye movement portion of EMDR. How best to facilitate a positive outcome by changing the story line of nightmares and intrusions will be illustrated, and finally a review of other current therapy for sleep disorders will be given.
