Editorial: Looking back, moving forward
This issue is our second special issue in 2009, celebrating 20 years of EMDR. First introduced in 1989 with reports of an important clinical study by Francine Shapiro, EMDR has developed from a simple desensitization technique to a comprehensive psychotherapy approach. Although its research evidence is primarily related to the treatment of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), some case studies and anecdotal reports indicate that EMDR may also be effective in reducing/eliminating symptoms related to other disorders, especially those with an emotionally disturbing etiology.
