The Impact and Adaptation of EMDR Therapy on the Taiwanese Deaf University Students (Journal of EMDR Practice and Research)

The Impact and Adaptation of EMDR Therapy on the Taiwanese Deaf University Students

Using EMDR with deaf adolescents adapting to hearing-dominated universities helped students stabilizing emotional arousal quickly.

Article Abstract

“Deaf adolescents from schools for the deaf face a difficult challenge adapting to hearing-dominated universities. They harbor stress or trauma from past interactions with the hearing. To understand the impact and adaptation of eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) therapy on such students, a pilot study and a formal study were executed for this case study using Taiwanese sign language for all interactions. The client’s changes were documented through diverse sources, while adherence to the standard protocol was verified using the EMDR Fidelity Rating Scale. Results showed that EMDR therapy helped the client in the formal study to maintain calm with the hearing and become capable of overcoming communication barriers, stabilizing emotional arousal quickly, and finally appreciating his academic journey. This study examined the adaptation of EMDR’s various stages for the Deaf and the beneficial environmental support for Deaf university students.”

EMDR in Three Adults With Severe Intellectual Disability and Posttraumatic Stress Disorder: A Multiple-Baseline Evaluation (Journal of EMDR Practice and Research)

EMDR in Three Adults With Severe Intellectual Disability and Posttraumatic Stress Disorder: A Multiple-Baseline Evaluation

Effectiveness of EMDR therapy using the storytelling method in three adults with severe intellectual disability and PTSD.

Article Abstract

“Research on trauma treatment in people with severe intellectual disability (SID; IQ 20–35) is scarce, and controlled studies are lacking. This study examined the effectiveness of eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) therapy using the storytelling method in three adults with SID and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). A multiple-baseline design was used to examine the effects of EMDR storytelling method on PTSD classification, PTSD symptoms, challenging behaviors, and dysfunctional behaviors in three adults with SID and PTSD. EMDR resulted in a significant decrease in PTSD symptoms, challenging behaviors, and most dysfunctional behaviors. None of the participants had a PTSD classification anymore after EMDR. Findings suggest EMDR to be effective in the treatment of PTSD in adults with SID. Follow-up research with a larger sample size is required.”
