A study of the traumatic events of rape and its treatment through the use of EMDR (Eye-movement desensitization reprocessing)

Description

Effects of the rape experience infiltrate every aspect of a victim's physical and mental well-being. As a result, many victims experience symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder so when a rape victim seeks treatment, she needs a counseling modality that effectively treats PTSD symptoms. This case study explores the role of Eye-Movement Desensitization Reprocessing as one effective treatment for PTSD symptoms. Findings from the case study demonstrate how EMDR is efficacious in reducing PTSD symptoms. Continuing research suggests EMDR is a useful counseling modality for rape victims.
