Counselor’s Corner on EMDR with Holocaust Survivor

In the Counselor’s Corner column, EMDR therapists respond to the question of Rimma Gofman, LMFT who asks: “I have a prospective new client who is a Holocaust survivor. She is now in her 80s and was a child during World War II. All I know is that she is struggling with severe depression, and her daughter thought that EMDR might be a good technique to help her mom. What are thoughts of this community on attempting to process something so severe, which had occurred so far back?”

The TEP Suite of EMDR Protocols: The Family of Trauma Episode Protocols Based on EMDR R-TEP and G-TEP

The TEP Suite of EMDR Protocols: The Family of Trauma Episode Protocols Based on EMDR R-TEP and G-TEP

Shapiro & Laub’s 2008 article introduced the term Early EMDR Intervention (EEI), and E. Shapiro’s 2009 article was a wake-up call to examine and define the field as an independent topic, which had not been researched yet as such. Despite Francine Shapiro’s guidelines for applying EMDR to recent events (Shapiro 2001), there were only a few loosely documented case references to its use at that time (e.g., Silver et al 2005) and no controlled trials. The EMDR R-TEP is, however, soundly based on and extended from Shapiro’s EMD and Recent Event protocols, and the EMDR therapy profession has widely adopted it with over a dozen published studies, including controlled trials. R-TEP contains procedures and features that prompted thoughts about a possible group application for greater access to EMDR treatment. The outcome was the EMDR G-TEP (Group Traumatic Episode Protocol, E. Shapiro, 2013, 2014, 2023), which included a scripted protocol and prominent step-by-step G-TEP
