Family systems coping with threatened illness: The use of therapeutic technique of eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), in the psychological treatment protocol

Description

When a threatened illness affects a person, the whole family system is seriously affected too. The illness produces deep effects on family members that could be traumatic for some of them. We developed a psychological treatment protocol that includes the EMDR technique that it’s effective in the treatment of the emotional symptoms caused by situations of traumatic events. The combined approach that include EMDR and family systems therapy can result in profound changes for both the individual and the family (Kaslow and Shapiro, 2007). We present this protocol that includes both approaches to help families with the threatened illness.
