Long-term treatment effect for pain disorder and eating disorder by using EMDR: A case report
This case received an integrated approach treatment mainly composed of eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) and Resource Development. The patient did not respond to the previous treatment with psychotropic medications and supportive psychotherapy. Thirty sessions of EMDR treatment were done for the patient. Psychological assessments were conducted before starting the treatment, after 5 months of treatment (mainly using EMDR ), the pain had disappeared completely. Binging Episodes had reduced to nil. The antidepressant medication had been maintained through the treatment. After the treatment, the patient improved on all the psychological scales and behavioural measures. This case suggests that the integrated approach treatment using EMDR may be effective for complex Pain Disorders and Eating Disorders
