The specificity of symptom change in post-traumatic stress disorder treated with eye movement desensitisation

Description

Since official recognition of post-traumatic stress a number of ways. These include intrusive recollections, indicated by nightmares or “flashbacks” to the event, avoidance of stimuli associated with the trauma, and increased arousal (DSM-III-R, 1987). Behavioural approaches have been somewhat successful in treatment (e.g.., Cooper & Clum, 1989; Keane & Kalouped, 1982) however, such methods have been time consuming, require intense effort by the patient, and symptom improvement can be slow.
