Report: EMDR in the treatment of a deaf PTSD patient – Advantages of a not entirely verbal psychotherapeutic intervention

Description

Advantages of a not entirely verbal psychotherapeutic intervention Abstract: The aim of Germany’s Federal Law on Equal Treatment for Disabled Persons is to assure equal participation for handicapped individuals. Barrier-freedom for various groups of persons is the declared objective, notably for the deaf. EMDR is a psychotherapeutic approach with relatively little dependence on verbal interventions. It centers mainly around the encouragement of patients to work through distressing memories (so-called reprocessing). With this in mind, a deaf trauma patient was transferred to EMDR therapists for treatment of his posttraumatic disorders. He was transferred by the psychotherapist who had treated him up to that point and who had a command of sign language but no specialization in traumatology. The case report describes how this long-term treatment developed over time and provides important indications for colleagues embarking on similar courses of therapy. It also serves to provide psychotherapy researchers with material for a potential pilot study.
