Stabilization techniques and EMDR - Two case illustrations
The poster presents two short case studies – vignettes. Both represent an illustration of interactions between stabilization techniques and trauma confrontation using ERMDR in the psychotherapy of PTSD. The first case portrays a part of a longer and more complex psychotherapy of a woman violently raped by a strange man. The second one exemplifies a short-term psychotherapy of a young woman who developed PTSD after being repeatedly attacked by a dog from a neighbor’s house. Each case in its own way shows the need for both stabilization and trauma-reprocessing and the role of providing real safety in the environment is highlighted.
