Summary

The study will consist in an evaluation of the EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) psychotherapy in the context on invasive primitive breast cancer. EMDR could then allow the affected patients to readjust their point of view on the pathology and thus promote more adapted behaviors or additional resources to cope with the disease. 190 Patients are going to be randomized in two groups : one group with EMDR psychotherapists and one group with support psychotherapists. Patients will receive 8 sessions. We expect that patient in EMDR psychotherapists group will have an higher decrease of anxiety score, depressive score (CES-D) and PTSD score, and a higher increase in quality of life.
