This is a literature review analyzing data to determine whether Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy is effective in children and adolescents with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Within this literature review, there will be a focus on the meaning behind EMDR as well as the history behind it, how it is used in therapy, and whether it has also had effectiveness towards others overall. It would discuss PTSD and how some patients find EMDR therapy effective for moving forward from their traumatic experiences. Based on available research and testing data, the discussion would then transition to finding out if EMDR could have the same effect on children and adolescents. It is important to discuss the reasons why EMDR is effective for some patients, as this can be helpful with therapy in psychiatric clinics and practices for children who experience PTSD.
