EMDR as an evidence-based therapy for trauma – A reply to the Independent Forensic Expert Group’s statement on conversion therapy

Description

In the Volume 30 of the Torture Journal, the Independent Forensic Expert Group (IFEG, 2020a) made a “Statement on Conversion Therapy,” based on Josina Bothe’s very detailed report “It’s torture, not therapy” (Bothe, 2020). In the US the common terminology now is Sexual Orientation Change Efforts (SOCE) since the terminology should not give the impression that it is a therapy. The authors of this paper have included Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy (Shapiro, 2018) among the practices performed “to create change in an individual’s sexual orientation.”
