1. Cohen, S. (2000). Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR): The making of a psychotherapy. McGill University (Canada). AAT MQ64135.
Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (ENDR) therapy has burst upon the psychotherapeutic scene as a tirne-limited, cost-contained, and efficacious treatrnent for anxiety, stress, and psychological trauma. Although this therapy has been pronounced as revolutionary by its inventor, Franche Shapiro, it has distinct historicd precedents. The explanatory models of pathogenic memory and dissociation Óheory, and the reiiance on mechanical inference for objectivity rnake EMDR therapy famiIiar and salieut. Notions of suggestion and hypnosis, aud the eye-movement component of therapy are presented as discontinuous with clinical and theoreticai practice, in order to fiee them h m the tainting associations of pseudo-science and quackery. By co~ect ingth e curent EMDR movement with the conceptual and practical history of traumatic memory, dissociation, and suggestion, 1 argue that EMDR is not revolutionary. It is a powerful technotogy of the self, nomaking and valourking certain ways of behaving and thinking. Shapiro's implicit assurnptions that psychological suffering is pathological, and that early traumatic events are indelibly encoded, stored and dissociated in the brain are problematized. A briefcornmentary on the mord, politicai, and psychotherapeutic implications of EMDR therapy is provided.

The client is a 27-year-old woman known to me from her first psychiatric hospitalization 2 1/2 years ago, during which she was diagnosed with Major Depression with psychotic features. She also had dissociative syrnptoms including well-defined "parts," though she did not experience time loss. She had tried about 20 different psychoactive medications prior to her first EMDR session, and had also received outpatient electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) 18 months earlier. During ECT, she maintained a straight-A average in her course work to obtain a second degree in nursing.
