1. Zhang, J. (2010, July). The effect of EMDR for children with PTSD/PTSS after the Sichaun earthquake. Presentation at the 1st EMDR Asia Conference, Bali, Indonesia.
A devastating earthquake suddenly struck over Sichuan Province of China at May 12, 2008. Two weeks after the quake, over five hundreds children who lost either parents or one parent were moved to RiZhao, ShanDong province. After a through screening with MiNi, Kiddie-Sads and the diagnosed assessment with Clinician-Administered PTSD Scale for Children and Adolescents (CAPS-CA), about 8 percent was diagnosed with PTSD or PTSS. 511 children were selected. The final diagnosis was made with DSM-IV. We treated these PTSD/PTSS children with Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), which is taken as one of the most effective treatments for PTSD. 26 children with PTSD consented to receive EMDR treatment and 26 completed the treatment. They were randomized into pretreatment group and waiting group. Children enrolled in treatment completed a number of self-report measures and CAPS-CA; pre-, mid- and post-treatment and at follow-up. All children received three 45-90minute sessions of EMDR, one session a week. The total score, subscale scores and ration of decreased score were calculated for CAPS-CA. Comparing the ratio of decreased score, the rations after the three sessions’ treatment were significantly higher than that of waiting group and naturally decreased with time. The results indicate that some children with PTSD after the SiChuan earthquake were getting well after short term EMDR.

2. Qain, M. (2010, July). Posttraumatic growth and its impact factos among earthquake victims in Sichuan. Presentation at the 1st EMDR Asia Conference, Bali, Indonesia.
To investigate the posttraumatic growth and its impact factors in victims having experienced Wenchuan earthquake and living in community in one of the most severe disaster area. With the Impact of Event Scale- Revised (IES-R), Posttraumatic Growth Inventory (PTGI) and questions about the objective and subjective influences (e.g. economic loss, personal feelings) of the earthquake to the subjects, data were collected from 2403 victims living in a temporary community of Pengzhou, a severe disaster impacted area. 2106 valid questionnaire were analyzed for the related factors influencing posttraumatic growth. The age of subjects and PTSD symptoms could predict posttraumatic growth significantly. Both objective and subjective influence of the earthquake on victims contributed significantly to posttraumatic growth, whereas they became less or not significant when PTSD symptoms were accounted into the regression model. PTSD symptoms were the most important factor to predict posttraumatic growth; economic loss for individual experiencing the earthquake could also predict posttraumatic growth stably.
