EMDR. Eine neue methode zur behandlung posttraumatischer belastungsstörungen

Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing: A new treatment method for postraumatic stress-disorder

Description

Studied the effectiveness of eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) in the inpatient treatment of postraumatic stress-disorder (PSD). Human Ss: Eight male and female German adults (aged 26–46 yrs) (PSD). The Ss received 1–9 sessions of EMDR within the context of a psychodynamic inpatient therapy program. Subjective units of discomfort in relation to traumatic memories; other trauma-related symptoms (e.g., sleep disorders, intrusive memories, and avoidance behavior); and self-related cognitions were measured at the beginning and end of inpatient therapy and at 3-mo and 6-mo follow-ups to determine the therapeutic effects of EMDR.
