A literature review of the use of eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) in adults diagnosed with post traumatic stress disorder

Description

Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a pernicious mental health problem that causes severe occupational and social impairments. Epidemiologic studies show that about 56% of the population will be exposed to a traumatic event and about 8-12% will meet the criteria for PTSD during their lifetime. Given the chronicity and the high rates of PTSD in today’s society, it is imperative to determine the most efficacious intervention that has the potential to reduce symptomatology. This literature review indicates that EMDR is a therapy that can be implemented with sustained benefits.
