An integrative program to treat refugees suffering from PTSD through group EMDR

Description

The purpose of this project was to provide a guide for practioners to treat refugees who are suffering from posttraumatic stress disorder with eye movement desensitization reprocessing in a group environment. The literature has shown that using EMDR in a group setting can be effective in treating a larger number of individuals than individual psychotherapy. In addition, the structure of the group presented is a brief group intervention model aimed at treating groups of six to eight individuals in four to eight weekly sessions.
