Treatment for PTSD symptoms has been shown to be effective
It is important to point out, however, that there are very effective treatments for managing PTSD symptoms. Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing is a research-based therapeutic approach for treating experientially based disorders and emotional difficulties that are caused by disturbing life experiences ranging from traumatic events such as combat stress, natural disaster or upsetting childhood events. EMDR was developed by psychologist Francine Shapiro in 1989, who, at that time, initiated a research study examining the efficacy of EMDR in treating traumatized Vietnam combat veterans and survivors of sexual assault.
