A controlled study of EMDR for PTSD rape victims

Description

Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) is a new technique developed to treat post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). This study evaluated the efficacy of EMDR compared to a no-treatment wait-list control in the treatment of PTSD in adult female sexual assault victims. Twenty-one subjects were entered and 18 completed. Treatment was delivered in four weekly individual sessions. Assessments were conducted pre- and post-treatment and three months following treatment termination by an independent assessor.
