Treating personality disorders with EMDR therapy

Description

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy has been shown to be an effective, efficient, and well-tolerated treatment for posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and useful for both adult and childhood onset PTSD. Since there is ample evidence of the contributions of early, chronic, severe interpersonal trauma, early attachment disturbances and negative life experiences in the development of Personality Disorders (PD), the indications for EMDR treatment of individuals with personality disorders seem clear. This article focuses on understanding the relevance of adaptive information in individuals with personality disorders. Specific adaptations for borderline, narcissistic and antisocial presentations during the different phases of EMDR will also be addressed.
