Samenvatting

Dat verkrachting een ingrijpende gebeurtenis is, behoeft geen betoog. Niet zelden is een posttraumatische stress-stoornis (PTSS) het gevolg. Behandeling is dan noodzakelijk. In dit artikel wordt beschreven hoe bij een dergelijke behandeling gebruik kan worden gemaakt van Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). Stapsgewijs wordt de EMDR-procedure beschreven, hetgeen wordt geïllustreerd aan de hand van een gevalsbeschrijving. Mede op grond van vergelijkbare ervaringen in de therapeutische praktijk, maar vooral op grond van de onderzoeksliteratuur, wordt EMDR naar voren geschoven als voorkeursbehandeling bij PTSS in het algemeen en PTSS ten gevolge van verkrachting in het bijzonder.

Abstract

This paper describes the use of Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) for posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in a rape victim. The unique steps of the basic EMDR-protocol are described and illustrated with a case-description. Based on the research literature EMDR is recognized as the treatment of choice for PTSD in general and PTSD after rape in particular.
