A study on eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) as a strategy for reducing high test anxiety in students of 12th grade

Description

The present study is an attempt to explore the effectiveness of Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) as a psychological intervention in reducing test anxiety among 12 grade students. 120 high test anxious students selected for the study. A pre-test post-test control group design was used for the study. In the pre-test condition all the students were pretested on Test Anxiety Inventory(Spielberger, 1980).The high test anxious students were selected and divided into experimental group (EMDR intervention) and control group (No EMDR intervention).This was followed by the individual EMDR intervention. The students belonging to control group were not exposed to any EMDR intervention. In the post test condition all the students from the experimental and control group were again tested for TAI. To test the significance difference between the experimental and control group ‘t’ test of significance was used. On the variable of test anxiety the difference was found to be significant (t(119) = 6.442, p
