Overview

This video provides an insightful view of Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), probing both its widespread popularity and areas of controversy. Larry Beutler, prominent psychotherapy researcher, serves as commentator in a program that features Francine Shapiro, EMDR's originator, as well as others in the field. The video offers a demonstration of the eight-step EMDR protocol and explores a range of issues surrounding this unique therapy. The accompanying manual by Jon Allen and associates reviews the clinical protocol and available research and features a helpful patient education handout. Note: EMDR is now recognized by the American Psychiatric Association as an effective treatment for ameliorating symptoms of both acute and chronic PTSD (APA Practice Guidelines for the Treatment of Patients with Acute Stress Disorder and Posttraumatic Stress Disorder).

Addressing these key questions and more, this compelling video provides an insightful view of EMDR, probing both its widespread popularity and its controversial nature. Larry Beutler, prominent psychotherapy researcher, serves as commentator in a presentation that features Francine Shapiro, EMDR's originator, as well as other authorities in the field, including Terence M. Keane, Kim Mueser, and Bessel van der Kolk. Bringing the therapy to life are simulated client sessions in which Dr. Shapiro demonstrates the eight-step EMDR protocol, including the much-talked-about eye movements. In an overview of trauma, Dr. Shapiro describes how persistent, profound, and deeply disturbing the effects of trauma can be. Exposure to extreme trauma can result in posttraumatic stress disorder symptoms such as nightmares, flashbacks, intrusive thoughts, phobias, and anxiety. Shapiro explains how EMDR has been shown to benefit victims of trauma by helping them reprocess disturbing thoughts and emories. Exploring a range of issues surrounding EMDR, Drs. Beutler, van der Kolk, Keane, Mueser, and others present their own perspectives and report on the current research.
