EMDR treatment of psychotic disorders, including schizophrenia: A case series

Description

Psychotic phenomena are challenging to treat; the most severe being schizophrenia, which has a heavy burden: life expectancy being reduced by 10 years, mostly through suicide. After over 100 years of experience only a minority make a full recovery. This workshop will examine the role of EMDR in the treatment of schizophrenia - as defined by the genetic epidemiological work of Professor Kenneth Kendler - and follows three patients treated with EMDR; one met strict criteria for schizophrenia and remains in recovery after 3 years. The workshop will discuss case selection and protocol development.
