Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing: A grant proposal


Individuals with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) faced one or more traumatic events in their lifetime that can lead to symptoms such as anxiety, flashbacks, and avoidance. As a result, these individuals can suffer from impairments such as a loss of functioning, inability to go work, and overall difficulties in coping with the difficulties of everyday life. Low-income individuals with PTSD face additional barriers due to the high costs of effective treatment. One evidence-based treatment for PTSD is Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). Noting the equal need for people of low socioeconomic status to receive treatment, a grant proposal was drafted to develop a program that would offer subsidized, shortterm EMDR treatment for low-income individuals who are adults (18 years and older) in Orange County. This program would reduce the symptoms of PTSD such that individuals can achieve a higher level of functioning. The grant was written in collaboration with the Norooz Foundation Clinic. Actual submission and funding of the grant are not required for the completion of the project.
