Intensive trauma-focused therapy: An open trial

Description

In recognition that memory reconsolidation does not require a slow, incremental approach (Ecker, Ticic, & Hully, 2012), our clinic, and a growing number of trauma-oriented therapists, now offer therapy in an intensive format typically involving many hours per day on consecutive days. Posited advantages of intensive therapy include treatment efficiency, rapidity of results, reduced risk of treatment-related destabilization, reduced risk of treatment disruption, and reduced total treatment cost (Greenwald, 2013a,b, 2015). Other than single-case studies (Grey, 2011; Lobenstine & Courtney, 2013; Wesson & Gould, 2009), eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) has not been evaluated in an intensive therapy format.
