Application of EMDR to a person with occupational maladjustment syndrome

Description

職場のメンタルヘルス問題は予防医学の視点から介入が行われており,近年では主にうつ病患者を対象とした職場復帰支援が試みられているが,まだ試行錯誤の段階である。本稿では抑うつ状態を呈して出勤不能となり休職療養となった従業員に対しEMDRを行った結果,症状が軽快し,復職と職場再適応が可能になった事例について報告する。本事例に基づき,職場不適応とトラウマ,およびEMDRの適用について考察する。

An intervention for mental health problems at the workplace has been conducted from the perspective of preventive medicine. Recently, support has been provided mainly for those who return to work after suffering from depression. However, such support is still provided on a trial and error basis. This paper reports a case of an employee who had a depressive state and became unable to go to work and took sick leave for medical treatment. Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) was applied to the employee and the symptoms improved. As a result, this person was able to get back to work and become readjusted to the old job. Based on this case study, the application of EMDR to job maladjustment and trauma is discussed.
