Letter to the Editor

Sir: I am a psychiatrist interested in treating patients with a history of trauma. I am particularly interested in the use of eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), since I have found it to be especially effective in resolving the residual of early and recent traumatic experiences of my patients. On the basis of my clinical observations and EMDR’s extensive controlled research base, I wanted to support the expansion of training and use of EMDR, and I became a member of the board of the EMDR International Association. I am writing as a concerned clinician, not as a board member.
