BRUNNET, Alice Einloft et al. Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) for posttraumatic stress disorder: a systematic review. Gerais, Rev. Interinst. Psicol. [online]. 2014, vol.7, n.1, pp. 119-131. ISSN 1983-8220.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a treatment technique for Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). This technique is based on an activation of traumatic memories with the help of bilateral stimuli providing a proper processing of these memories. Although meta-analysis of the technique are available, some gaps are still reported in literature. This study consists of a systematic review that aims at addressing these gaps and, in addition, providing a brief summary as to the application of the EMDR protocol since there is little published material on the subject. This study concluded that randomized clinical trials and follow up studies support the evidence that EMDR is efficient compared with other techniques and that the effects of EMDR remain for at least as long as other forms of therapy
