November 23, 2013
The Marietta Times

Despite a high percentage of soldiers with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and increasing rates of suicide, the Department of Veteran Affairs (DVA) has not conducted any research on Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) since 1998. EMDR is an effective, widely recognized trauma treatment, regarded as first line of treatment for PTSD in numerous national and international practice guidelines. In fact, the DVA and the Department of Defense (DoD) Practice Guidelines (2010) list EMDR therapy as an "A" level treatment, described as "A strong recommendation that clinicians provide the intervention to eligible patients."
