NPR and New Scientist are not scientifc sources, they are secondary sources. They stories they report are the result of research by a reporter, not by a scientist. Psychologica treatments are very difficult to study by strict scientific methods, because the studies are very difficult to design. How to do you do a double blind study of something like psychocanalysis or EMDR? You can't. The best you can do is have trained professionals apply the techniques and objectively report on the results. Skeptics can always find things to criticize about methods studied in that way, but that doesn't mean the skeptics are right. When highly trained professionals say that certain methods are helpful to their patients, and when patients that have been in distress find improvemnt in their lives, sometimes that has to be enough proof.
