About this Research Topic
The main aim of this current research topic is to collate new scientific evidence, clinical experiences, reviews, and opinion articles on the use of EMDR in clinical health psychology and psychotherapy. Furthermore, this research topic aims to examine the psychological factors, basic psychological processes, and theoretical models that underpin the role of EMDR in treatment processes, including its integration with other psychotherapies.
We invite researchers and clinicians to submit their original research articles, systematic reviews, meta-analyses, theoretical papers, and clinical case reports related to EMDR and its application within the Adaptive Information Processing model. This Research Topic aims to provide a comprehensive understanding of the theoretical and practical aspects of EMDR therapy and its integration with the Adaptive Information Processing model. EMDR therapy has been shown to be an effective treatment for various psychological conditions, such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety disorders, and depression. The Adaptive Information Processing model explains how traumatic experiences are stored in the brain and how EMDR therapy can facilitate the natural healing process by reprocessing these experiences in a safe and supportive environment. This Research Topic provides an opportunity for researchers and clinicians to share their latest findings and insights related to EMDR therapy and the Adaptive Information Processing model. We encourage submissions from a wide range of perspectives, including but not limited to neuroscience, clinical psychology, social work, and psychiatry. We welcome submissions that explore the mechanisms of EMDR therapy, its effectiveness in treating different populations and psychological disorders, the integration of EMDR with other psychotherapeutic approaches, and the application of EMDR therapy in diverse cultural contexts. All submitted manuscripts will undergo a rigorous peer-review process and will be published online once accepted. We are confident that this special issue will provide a valuable contribution to the field of clinical psychology and psychotherapy and advance our understanding of the potential benefits of EMDR therapy within the Adaptive Information Processing model. We look forward to receiving your submissions and thank you for your interest in this Research Topic.
