Pilot study with G-TEP EMDR in women victims of intimate partner violence

Description

It is proposed that early intervention is important in order to prevent the development of more serious mental health problems (e.g. PTSD, depression) as well as to increase women’s resilience and even prevent conflict in community (Slobodin and de Jong, 2015).

In 2008, Elan Shapiro and Brurit Laub developed the Recent Traumatic Episode Protocol (R-TEP) (Shapiro and Laub, 2008). The EMDR R-TEP is an integrative recent trauma-focused protocol for Early EMDR Intervention and includes procedures and measures for containment and safety. The EMDR R-TEP protocol introduced a focus on the trauma episode rather than only on the initial trauma event. During 2013, Elan Shapiro introduced a group application, the Group Traumatic Episode Protocol (G-TEP).

Considering the limited number of resources for women victims of intimate partner violence and the high risk of re-victimisation because of the impact of the trauma, it is crucial to provide cost and time effective, easily learned and applied interventions. For this reason, we designed a study applying EMDR G-TEP to women victims of intimate partner violence.
