Effectiveness of eye movement desensetization and reprocessing in anxiety: A case report

Description

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is an eight-phase, threepronged therapeutic approach that helps in reprocessing maladaptively stored and inadequately processed memories. The present case is a part of pilot study for the main research titled ‘Efficacy of Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Intervention in Adults with Anxiety Disorders and Insecure Attachment.’ The case is of a client X, a 24-year-old male, graduate and pursuing CS (Company Secretary), unmarried, living in nuclear family presented with chief complaints of fear and anxiety related to mathematics since school. More recently, as he was preparing for CS exams, one of the subjects being math, he started experiencing anxiety again. After administration of the tools for baseline evaluation, EMDR intervention was initiated. After the intervention, tools were administered to determine post-intervention evaluation. In the present case, EMDR was found to be helpful in decreasing anxiety and increasing self-soothing behaviour. Further, larger sample to be taken for better generalization.
