What helps the helper? : What does experienced EMDR-therapists perceive as risk factors and protective factors in the treatment of traumatized patients? (English)
Abstract [sv]

Eye Movement, Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) är en evidensbaserad behandling som framförallt erbjuds patienter med Post Traumatiskt Stressyndrom (PTSD) i Sverige. Psykoterapeuter som arbetar med dessa svårt traumatiserade patienter kan vara utsatta för allvarliga hälsorisker. Syftet med studien är att undersöka hur EMDR-utbildade psykoterapeuter upplever sitt behandlingsarbete med traumatiserade patienter, avseende psykologiska risker och skyddsfaktorer för hälsan. Undersökningen gjordes med semistrukturerade intervjuer av sex EMDR-terapeuter enligt kvalitativ metod. Med hjälp av tematisk analys har teman gällande exempelvis arbetsbelastning, handledningsbehov och framgångsupplevelser av EMDR-metoden kunnat skönjas. Undersökningen visar att flertalet av psykoterapeuterna har upplevt risker i form av upplevd psykisk stress med arbetet, men att de också funnit robusta, skyddande och stärkande faktorer i såväl arbetssituationen, som i privatlivet.

Abstract [en]

Eye Movement, Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is an evidence based treatement that is offered primarily to patients suffering from Post- Traumatic Stress Syndrome (PTSD). Psychotherapists who treat these severely traumatized patients are at risk for turther health concerns compared to other therapists. This essay aims towards examining how EMDR-therapists perceive the risks that EMDR-therapy with traumatized patients can affect the therapist, and the factors that makes the treatment possible to continue with. The study was conducted  through semistructured interviews with six EMDR-therapists, based on a qualitative method. With the help of thematic analysis, themes such as workload, need of guidance and succesful experiences concerning EMDR has beend found. The study also shows that many of the informants has experienced risk factors such as mental stress concerning work, but also robust, protective and strengthening factors at the work place and in private life.
