Hypnotherapy, Gestalt, EMDR and the treatment of posttraumatic stress
Abstract: Discusses the clinical observations on the use of Gestalt therapy and Eye Movement Desensitization Reprogramming (EMDR) under hypnosis for the treatment of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The observations are made in the context of 2 cases: (1) a woman who had been bound during an armed hold-up in her home, and (2) an emergency services worker suffering from accumulated stress resulting in burn-out. Therapy for PTSD requires the re-education of the subconscious. The use of Gestalt and EMDR under hypnosis effectively brings about this re-education.
