Abstract


Objective: To report the results of the first randomised feasibility trial of Eye MovementDesensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) plus Standard Care (SC) vs. SC alone for DSM-5Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) in adults with intellectual disabilities (IDs).

Method: A total of 29 participants were randomised to either to EMDR + SC (n= 15) or SC (n= 14). Participants completed measures on traumatic stress (PCL-C) and . comorbid distress at baseline, 1-week post-treatment and 3-month follow-up.

Results: In the EMDR + SC group, 9 (60%) participants at post-treatment and 7 (47%) participants at 3-month follow-up were diagnosis free. In SC, 4 (27%) at post-treatment and follow-up were diagnosis free. At post-treatment 3 participants (20%) dropped out from the EMDR + SC group, and 1 (7%) dropped out from the SC group.

Conclusions: It is feasible, acceptable and potentially effective to deliver EMDR in this population group.
