Figure F-75 is titled “Change in BDI for EMDR compared with an inactive control, by type of comparator.” The figure displays a forest plot reporting the standardized mean difference in BDI scores stratified by EMDR versus waitlist and EMDR versus usual care. The plot depicts greater reductions in BDI scores for patients treated with EMDR than waitlist (2 trials, standardized mean difference −1.15, 95% CI −1.66 to −0.64, I2=0.0%) or usual care (1 trial, standardized mean difference −1.30, 95% CI −2.23 to −0.37). The overall analysis favored EMDR (standardized mean difference −1.18, 95% CI −1.63 to −0.74, I2=0.0%).
