Using the EMDR recent event protocol with homicide survivors and victims or other violent crimes
Homicide is a stark reality in the United States and claims over 16,500 victims a year. The EMDR Recent Event Protocol combined with the innovative Visual Assessment Tool (VAT) is a key tool used in the treatment of victims/ survivors and offers a structured and effective way for clients to desensitize and recover from the trauma of the murder of a loved one. The effective use of the Recent Event Protocol will be explored, as it pertains to homicide victims and victims of other violent crimes. This will include a review of the protocol, engagement of the client, assessment and use of the Visual Assessment Tool to obtain the current images/targets that will be desensitized.
