Research Evidence on EMDR


EMDR is one of the most researched therapy approaches for PTSD.  In the last 25 years, there have been over 20 controlled clinical studies that found EMDR to effectively decrease or eliminate the symptoms of PTSD for the majority of clients and it is more efficient. Here are some links to journal articles on EMDR that may serve as a good starting point.

1) The Role of Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy in Medicine: Addressing the Psychological and Physical Symptoms Stemming from Adverse Life Experiences

2) EMDR’s Neurobiological Mechanisms of Action: A Survey of 20 Years of Searching

3) A meta-analysis of the contribution of eye movements in processing emotional memories

4) Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing: A review of the efficacy of EMDR in the treatment of PTSD.

5) Treating Combat-Related Stress Disorders: A Multiple Case Study Using EMDR With Battlefield Casualties From The Iraqi War.
