Abstract: This study compared the effectiveness of Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) with Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) on reducing the PTSD and Depression symptoms for sample of abused children. Twenty six abused children ranged between 11 to 13 years with a significant PTSD and depression symptoms were randomly assigned to three treatment conditions: EMDR, TF-CBT and waitlist group. The Children completed Children Depression Inventory (CDI) and Posttraumatic Stress Symptom in Children (PTSS-C) instruments prior to therapy, directly after completion of therapy, and at 4-month follow-up. Both EMDR and TF-CBT were found to have significant positive effects on reducing PTSD and Depression symptoms at posttest and 4-month follow up compared with waitlist group.
