EMDR for the treatment of PTSD

Description

The Expert Consensus Guideline Series is a commendable endeavor, and the design has obviously been carefully thought out. However, although the Guidelines may represent the cutting edge in some respects, at least one element is definitely lagging behind. Design features led to a marked under-valuation of eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) in the Guidelines issues on the treatment of posttraumatic stress disorder, relative to the published empirical support for the efficacy of EMDR as well as indications of preference for EMDR among both clinicians and patients with direct experience (e.g., van Etten and Taylor).
