Uniformed reserved personnel and volunteer reservists assigned on duty in response to Covid-19 had experienced distress and negative psychological consequences. This study investigates the effects of the EMDR Integrative Group Treatment Protocol (EMDR-IGTP) on uniformed reserved personnel and volunteer reservists (n = 66). Using ex-post facto research design, EMDR-IGTP was explored in reducing distress and promoting well-being and change management amongst uniformed reserves during the enhanced community quarantine were explored. Results shows that there was a significant difference in the subjective unit of distress from the pre-IGTP and post-IGTP. There was a decrease in SUD revealed in the post-test, suggesting that IGTP played a huge role in lowering down the subjective unit of disturbances of the participants. One-way ANOVA (F2.399432062 =16.03064364, p < 0.001) test showed a significant difference in the subjective unit of disturbance of the four (4) axes. The results from the pre-test (M = 4.47, SD = 0.38) and post-test (M = 4.31, SD = 0.40) well-being assessment indicate that the IGTP resulted in significant difference t(57) = 1.95, p = .02, with the post-test showing a lower mean score as compared to the pre-test. Considering the results, implications of the study on interventions in lowering distress levels among Uniformed personnel and volunteer reservists are mentioned.
