EMDR Research in Europe
In the course of EMDR psychotherapy, brain information processing systems are stimulated, as demonstrated in 14 controlled studies dealing with the treatment of severe trauma and post traumatic stress disorders. However the mechanisms involved during the various steps of the therapy, and particularly during bilateral stimulations, are not yet clearly understood.
Moreover the application of EMDR therapy has been extended to many psychological disorders related to stress and anxiety. The efficacy of the standard protocol as well as of the various adapted protocols has to be evaluated and demonstrated.
Clinical as well as fundamental research programs are in progress in several European countries. The EMDR Europe Association considers this field of great importance for the development and recognition of EMDR Therapy. Information about current research programs is presented in order to promote interest and eventually finance research programs in the field of EMDR. You will find below a list of the ongoing research and contact information to get in touch with the researchers.
