On December 31, 2009, the Fort Campbell/Clarksville, TN online newsource, TheLeafChronicle.com, published an article centered around EMDRIA Certified Therapist, EMDRIA Approved Consultant, and retired Colonel E.C. Hurley, Dmin., LMFT.
Hurley, who is now the executive director of the Soldier Center and Marriage and Family Institute, is an outspoken supporter of using EMDR as a treatment for military PTSD, and at the 2009 EMDRIA Conference Hurley presented a session designed to educate therapists about military culture and how to administer EMDR to military clients.
In this article, Hurley emphasizes that EMDR “can be more than 85-percent effective in the treatment of combat-related stress” and with more than 30 years of experience treating soldiers and their families, Hurley is most definitely an expert in the matter. We hope that as a result of his experience, credentials, and military knowledge, his support of EMDR will be taken very seriously.
