How Does Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy Work? A Systematic Review on Suggested Mechanisms of Action
TLDR
A thorough systematic search for studies that examined the mechanism of action of EMDR demonstrated a reasonable empirical support for the working memory hypothesis and for the physiological changes associated with successful EMDR therapy.
Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing for adults with intellectual disabilities: Process issues from an acceptability study
TLDR
There was cautious optimism that EMDR may be useful for "the right person at the right time" in this small-scale study, and process issues in the implementation of EMDR from perspectives of multiple stakeholders are investigated.
What Makes a Good EMDR Therapist? Exploratory Findings From Client-Centered Inquiry
There are several qualities of good EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing) therapists that must be examined to understand what clients most value in this specialized treatment. These
What is the Role of Eye Movements in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)? A Review
TLDR
Investigation of whether eye movement bilateral stimulation is an essential component of EMDR and the current status of its theoretical basis suggests support for the contention that EMs are essential to this therapy and that a theoretical rationale exists for their use.
Efficacy of Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing for Patients with Posttraumatic-Stress Disorder: A Meta-Analysis of Randomized Controlled Trials
TLDR
It is confirmed that EMDR therapy significantly reduces the symptoms of PTSD, depression, anxiety, and subjective distress in PTSD patients.
EMDR beyond PTSD: A Systematic Literature Review
TLDR
EMDR therapy could be a useful psychotherapy to treat trauma-associated symptoms in patients with comorbid psychiatric disorders and might be useful to improve psychotic or affective symptoms and could be an add-on treatment in chronic pain conditions.
The Efficacy of Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing in Children and Adults Who Have Experienced Complex Childhood Trauma: A Systematic Review of Randomized Controlled Trials
TLDR
There is growing evidence to support the clinical efficacy of EMDR in treating CT in both children and adults, but conclusions are limited by the small number of heterogenous trials.
Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR): a meta-analysis.
TLDR
EMDR appears to be no more effective than other exposure techniques, and evidence suggests that the eye movements integral to the treatment, and to its name, are unnecessary.
Comparing the efficacy of EMDR and trauma-focused cognitive-behavioral therapy in the treatment of PTSD: a meta-analytic study
TLDR
It is suggested that in the treatment of PTSD, both therapy methods tend to be equally efficacious and future research should not restrict its focus to the efficacy, effectiveness and efficiency of these therapy methods but should also attempt to establish which trauma patients are more likely to benefit from one method or the other.
