Treating Post-traumatic Stress Disorder in Patients with Multiple Sclerosis: A Randomized Controlled Trial Comparing the Efficacy of Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing and Relaxation
TLDR
It is suggested that it is essential that PTSD symptoms are detected and that brief and cost-effective interventions to reduce PTSD and associated psychological symptoms are offered to patients, in order to help them to reduce the psychological burden associated with their neurological condition.
Efficacy of a trauma-focused treatment approach for dental phobia: a randomized clinical trial.
TLDR
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing was associated with significant reductions of dental anxiety and avoidance behavior as well as in symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
EMDR in the treatment of chronic phantom limb pain.
TLDR
The results suggest that a significant aspect of phantom limb pain is the physiological memory storage of the nociceptive pain sensations experienced at the time of the event and these memories can be successfully reprocessed.
Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) therapy in the treatment of depression: a matched pairs study in an inpatient setting
TLDR
The aim of this study was to determine the effectiveness of EMDR therapy with this disorder.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing as an Adjunctive Treatment of Unipolar Depression: A Controlled Study
Depression is a severe mental disorder that challenges mental health systems worldwide. About 30% of treated patients do not experience a full remission after treatment, and more than 75% of patients
EMDR and Phantom Limb Pain: Theoretical Implications, Case Study, and Treatment Guidelines
TLDR
The case study explores the use of EMDR with a 38-year-old man experiencing severe phantom limb pain 3 years after the loss of his leg and part of his pelvis in an accident and describes the application of Shapiro’s Adaptive Information Processing (AIP) model in the treatment of phantom limbPain.

Facilitating Access to Emotions: Neural Signature of EMDR Stimulation
