Article Abstract

Letter to the Editor

Sir: In their article for a recent supplement to the Journal, Foa and Street summarize psychotherapeutic interventions for posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). They indicate that 2 procedures, exposure therapy and stress inoculation training (SIT), are effective in reduction of PTSD symptoms. They describe other psychotherapy procedures, but they do not mention an important therapeutic method for PTSD: eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR).
