Case report

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (emdr) as a treatment for posttraumatic stress disorder

J. van Trier

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (emdr) is an effective treatment for posttraumatic stress disorder. A case study presents a man who had been trapped in his car under water. The negative cognition: I'm lost, is transformed in: I'll come out of it. After one session all symptoms disappeared. Follow-up after one year showed no relapse.
