EMDR in conjoint couples therapy: Relational trauma treatment theory

Description

EMDR is an evidence-based trauma treatment primarily conducted within individual therapy. Though it has been incorporated into couples therapy in recent years, limited research has examined its use within conjoint couples therapy and none has systematically investigated the experience of both clients and therapists. The purpose of this study was to explore the experiences of couples and therapists during conjoint EMDR. Interviews were conducted with 21 participants including seven couples and their therapists. The theory developed about conjoint EMDR as a relational trauma treatment provides perspectives not captured in previous research and offers guidance about assessment and preparation procedures.
