Research from the University of Groningen and Fonds Slachofferhulp shows that families of murder victims have significantly less post-traumatic stress and complicated grief complaints after they have undergone a treatment combination of EMDR and cognitive behavioral therapy. This is announced at the symposium Mourning After Murder on Thursday October 23 in The Hague.
EMDR and CBT treatment have been used more often with people with other mental health problems. For the first time the combation of treatments is used and scientifically evaluated for the Mourning after Murder. The effective treatment is now implemented in practice. The study was conducted by PhD student Mariëtte van Denderen and by Associate professor Jos de Keijser.
