Thank you for inviting one of the most accomplished leaders in the field of traumatic stress to share his insights and research about PTSD and the hopeful and encouraging advances in treatment.
I did want to add an additional insight based on my own clinical experience and those of countless colleagues. While the present research demonstrates how remarkably efficacious EMDR is in treating and resolving the effects of single incident adult onset trauma -- it has also proven to be an elegant protocol in treating early and complex attachment traumas. I believe that when the research on EMDR's application to this debilitating form of PTSD is further along, the outcomes will continue to reinforce how multi-faceted this brilliant intervention is when creatively, thoughtfully and rigorously practiced.
