In previous issues of ETQ we have piggy-backed on to Andrew Leeds research blog. It has always proved to be a valuable resource for us in the UK. From November 2022, we acquired the ability to generate our own equivalent using the EMDR Publications Database. This has been developed collaboratively using the expertise of the Sheffield School of Health and Related Research (ScHARR) and is provided as a free resource for Association members. Over 400 members have signed up so far, and hopefully as reports of its usefulness spread more of you will use it as a resource to support your clinical and research work. You can learn how to access the database here EMDR Publications Database

The EMDR Publications Database is a collection of peer-reviewed research and dissertations/theses focusing on EMDR. It contains over 1300 references, many of which have access to the full text. References in the database are categorised by keywords relating to the clinical area and study type, allowing for easy browsing. The database can also be searched by terms of interest.

The database was last updated in January 2023, and 180 recent publications have been added.  These can be easily viewed, by clicking on the “NEW” tag in the EMDR database.  Within the NEW tag, you can then select further tags of interest to see what has recently been added for specific topics and research types.
