Abstract
 

A large volume of studies has proven the handicapping symptoms of depression and raised it to a major health issue. These symptoms include apathy, extended sadness, and impeded sleep and daily activities. The current research is focusing on EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) known for its efficiency in treating disorders characterized by emotional disturbances such as Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The research’s hypothesis suggests that EMDR may be efficient in treating post traumatic major depressive disorder. Several protocols have been studied for this research, Steele’s [19], Hofman’s [8], Grey and Morrow’s [6] protocols. At last, our research explores the different protocols of EMDR adapted to major depressive disorder and its etiology. For the major depressive episode caused by “T traumas”, the focus would be on targeting the triggering elements of the episode before working on changing negative cognitions. Regarding the major depressive episode caused by “t traumas”, it seemed to require more cognitive interweaving and self-esteem restoring. Finally, building a “secure self” through EMDR adapted protocol has been more relevant for patients whose depression was associated with attachment disorder.
