EMDR with obsessive compulsive disorder – an Indian experience

Description

This is a history of a 35 yrs. old man who came with symptoms of OCD. He was initially treated with medication and CBT. He did show some improvement and was maintained on medication. He did not follow-up for a long time. He narrated an incident, which he believed had started it all, on his visit after 3 years. He was being treated by another psychiatrist. Client wanted to decrease the dosage of medicine. This was done and EMDR was tried on that incident. He showed a lot of improvement. Culture specific resources and cognitive interweaves were used. Medication was continued on a low dose. He did not follow-up for 2 years. When he did, the recovery was still maintained. He had continued low-dose medication, intermittently, without advice. The original memory was no longer bothering him.
