Default Re: When EMDR Goes Wrong--A Patient's Perspective

Thank you for your personal and enlightening post. Although clearly I have no where near enough information to know what happened in your particular case, this is a time for me to say what I always say here. There are important assessment and screening steps which must be undertaken properly before using EMDR with an individual with a complex trauma history. Those screenings must be done with EVERY single client whether they seem necessary or not. The story we have heard here closely resembles what can happen if those steps are not taken. When there is a complex trauma history, modifications to the EMDR procedure must be made for its safe use.
