Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (Emdr), Second Edition
By

Rating
This volume provides the definitive guide to Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), the psychotherapeutic approach developed by Francine Shapiro. EMDR is one of the most widely investigated treatments for posttraumatic stress disorder, and many other applications are also being explored. To keep up with this growing body of knowledge, the second edition has been revised to incorporate current neurobiological data, findings from controlled clinical studies, and literature on emerging clinical applications. Chapters provide background on EMDR's development, theoretical constructs, and possible underlying mechanisms, and present updated protocols and procedures for working with adults and children with a range of presenting problems. Among the many clinical populations for whom the material in this volume has been seen as applicable are survivors of sexual abuse, crime, and combat, as well as sufferers of phobias and other experientially based disorders. Detailed descriptions and transcripts guide the clinician through every stage of therapeutic treatment, from client selection to the administration of EMDR and its integration within a comprehensive treatment plan

Reviews

"EMDR, arising out of a cognitive-behavioral orientation, has increasingly become a rather strikingly integrative approach. Its potential fascination for psychodynamically oriented therapists is considerable. In my own experience, it has seemed to generate 'deep' material rapidly and to provide access to a wider range of associations and of sensory/affective connections. I am personally eager to conduct research further investigating these impressions, and hope other psychodynamically oriented clinician-researchers will join in this investigative effort."--Paul Wachtel, PhD, City College and the Graduate Center, City University of New York "Since the introduction of EMDR in 1989, over 40,000 clinicians have been trained in its practice and a large volume of scientific work has established its remarkable, and unusually rapid, capacity to treat the effects of psychological trauma. Despite the fact that EMDR brings together aspects of many major psychological orientations, it appears to have unique treatment effects that are still only partially understood. Francine Shapiro, has consistently promoted the highest standards of clinical rigor and scientific efforts to further the understanding of this unique procedure. This book lucidly presents the method and the accumulated scientific knowledge, and spells out the puzzles and controversies that continue to be resolved in the context of the ongoing evolution of neuroscience and outcome research. Personally, I have been amazed by the effectiveness of EMDR. I would no longer know how to treat my patients without having this tool available. It has changed my whole notion about how well we can help traumatized people."--Bessel A. van der Kolk, MD, Professor of Psychiatry, Boston University School of Medicine
