  • 4. 

    EMD was changed to EMDR in what year?

    • A.

      1990

    • B.

      1991

    • C.

      1992

    The change from EMD to EMDR denotes a shift of emphasis from what to what?

    • A.

      Desensitization to information retrieval

    • B.

      Desensitization to reprocessing

EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, which suggests that the focus is not only on desensitizing the individual but also on processing the information related to the traumatic event. This implies that EMDR aims to help individuals process and integrate the traumatic memories, thoughts, and emotions, rather than simply desensitizing them to the distressing stimuli.

    In the Lee and Drummond (2008) article, Effects of eye movement versus therapist instruction on the processing of distressing memories, it was determined that eye movements

    • A.

      Are unimportant in the process of disturbance

    • B.

      Are more important than therapist instructions in reducing disturbance

    • C.

      Cause a “distancing effect”

    • D.

      B and c above

    Correct Answer
    D. B and c above
    Explanation
    The correct answer is b and c above. In the Lee and Drummond (2008) article, it was found that eye movements are more important than therapist instructions in reducing disturbance and also cause a "distancing effect." This suggests that eye movements play a significant role in the processing of distressing memories and can help individuals distance themselves from the emotional impact of those memories.

     In the M. Wilensky’s (2006), Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) as a treatment for phantom limb pain, the percentage reported of reduction in pain by the 4 participants who completed the study was:

    • A.

      50%

    • B.

      75%

Wilensky, the participants who completed the study reported a 100% reduction in pain after undergoing Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) treatment for phantom limb pain. This suggests that EMDR may be an effective treatment for reducing pain in individuals experiencing phantom limb pain.

    The EMDR Research Foundation's Translating Research Into Practice (TRIP) consists of brief articles written by clinicians. These articles describe clinical cases in detail and provide further explanation and elaboration on published research. The purpose of TRIP is to help clinicians understand and apply research findings in their practice. It serves as a guide for clinicians on how to effectively utilize research studies to inform their clinical work.

    In order to submit an EMDR Research Foundation Translating Research Into Practice (TRIP) article, the author must do which of the following?

    • A.

      Provide clinical pre/post measures of the clinical cases they describe in their article

    • B.

      Include an abstract of a published EMDR-related research study and provide clinical case examples that support, elaborate, or illustrate the results of research

    • C.

      Describe the results of their own pilot study of an innovative application of EMDR

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. Include an abstract of a published EMDR-related research study and provide clinical case examples that support, elaborate, or illustrate the results of research
    Explanation
    The author must include an abstract of a published EMDR-related research study and provide clinical case examples that support, elaborate, or illustrate the results of research. This requirement ensures that the article is based on scientific research and that the author provides real-world examples to demonstrate the effectiveness of EMDR. By including an abstract of a published study, the author can provide a foundation of existing research on the topic, while the clinical case examples add practical context and support to the article. This approach helps to bridge the gap between research and practice, making the article more valuable for readers.

    Published research has shown positive results when comparing EMDR to which of the following psychotropic medications?

    • A.

      Fluoxetine

    • B.

      Citalopram

    • C.

      Prazosin

    • D.

      A and b above

    Correct Answer
    D. A and b above
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "a and b above" because published research has shown positive results when comparing EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) to both Fluoxetine and Citalopram, which are psychotropic medications commonly used to treat depression and anxiety disorders. EMDR is a psychotherapy approach that has been found to be effective in treating trauma-related conditions, and it has been shown to be as effective as medication in some cases. Prazosin, on the other hand, is not a psychotropic medication commonly used for treating depression or anxiety disorders, so it is not included in the comparison.

      California Child Welfare Indicators Project

    • B.

      California Mental Health Advocates for Children

    • C.

      California Evidence-Based Clearinghouse for Child Welfare

    Correct Answer
    D. California Evidence-Based Clearinghouse for Child Welfare
    Explanation
    The California Evidence-Based Clearinghouse for Child Welfare is the correct answer because it is the only organization listed that has received a Level 1 rating for EMDR as a trauma focused treatment for children. This rating indicates that there is strong research evidence supporting the effectiveness of EMDR in treating trauma in children. The other organizations listed may be involved in child welfare or mental health advocacy, but they have not specifically received a Level 1 rating for EMDR.

    What was the name originally given in 1995 to the framework currently known as the Adaptive Information Processing model that is used to help explain symptom development and the observed treatment effects of EMDR on those symptoms?

    • A.

      Articulated Intuitive Processing model

    • B.

      Accelerated Information Processing model

    • C.

      Aggravating Information Processing model

    • D.

      Adjunctive Intelligence Processing model

    Correct Answer
    B. Accelerated Information Processing model
    Explanation
    The correct answer is the Accelerated Information Processing model. This model was originally named in 1995 and is used to explain how symptoms develop and how Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) treatment affects those symptoms. The model suggests that during EMDR therapy, information is processed at an accelerated rate, allowing for the integration of traumatic memories and the reduction of distressing symptoms.
