Eye-movement desensitisation to overcome post-traumatic stress disorder.
J Spector, M Huthwaite

Abstract

A new treatment using a saccadic eye-movement desensitisation (EMD) procedure has recently been introduced to treat post-traumatic stress disorder, a disorder that has been difficult to treat in the past. The treatment is claimed to be very rapid and successful. This paper reports the treatment of a woman with posttraumatic stress disorder following a horrific road traffic accident using the EMD procedure.
