Eye-movement desensitization and reprocessing: The new standard for treating post-traumatic stress and other trauma-related disorders

Description

There has been controversy surrounding the use of Eye-Movement Desensitization and Repossessing (EMDR) since its creation in 1987. This relatively new treatment was designed to treat Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and other Trauma-Related Disorders. However, little is known as to how it works, and how it stacks up to other treatments based on cognitive behavioral therapy. Does EMDR really work at warp speed? Can it be used to treat other psychological disorders? Through this literature review, we will examine how it works, what its efficacy is compared to other treatments, and also what EMDR means for the future of psychological treatments. EMDR can be a great solution for those who suffer with PTSD and other Trauma-Related Disorders as it offers a quicker and more effective solution than the traditional cognitive behavioral treatments.
