1. Grand, D. (1996, June). Integrating EMDR into the psychodynamic treatment process. EMDRIA Newsletter, 1(1), 14-16.
EMDR was originally developed utilizing cognitive therapy theories and constructions (i.e., cognitive/behavior restructuring, information processing, rating scales) (Shapiro, 1995). Accordingly, the relevance and potential applications of psychodynamic concepts to EMDR went largely unnoticed. However, Dr. Shapiro formed the concept ‘syclectic’ (synthesis of the eclectic) as she recognized the analytic contributions to EMDR such as the significance of early childhood memories, the unconscious, free association, insight, catharsis, abreaction, and symbolism (Shapiro, 1995). In face, a psychodynamic therapist incorporating EMDR into his or her technique cannot help but learn and recognize the value of many cognitive ideas and practices. The same holds true for cognitive practitioners who can discover that the use of EMDR opens to them the shadowy word so familiar to the analyst. Accordingly, EMDR lies at the confluence of two great rivers of thought which is further evidence of its profound nature.
