This is the textbook for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing—as opposed to the popular book titled EMDR. The popular book is much more readable, citing numerous case examples and transcripts of actual therapy sessions, while the textbook is much more thorough, presenting the nitty-gritty, step-by-step details on how to perform the therapy.
EMDR is a technique for treating psychological problems caused by trauma. Initially, it was applied primarily to combat veterans and rape victims s

Recommends it for: Counselors, therapists, and social workers who use EMDR with clients
The primary clinical manual on an unconventional but often highly effective treatment method for PTSD and other problems, by the creator of that treatment. Having been trained in EMDR and used it with clients for years, I can attest to the fact that for many people, though not all, it works powerfully to help them get over the lasting effects of whatever trauma they have survived, to move on. It also works for phobias, addictions, and some other problems.
The book is not a substitute for the form

Well written book on basic principles & procedures used in EMDR therapy. Primarily geared for Professionals utilizing the techniques in psychotherapy, yet still a good read for those interested in broadening understanding in alternate methods, perspectives, therapies & theories with trauma treatment. I purchased to expand possible healing alternatives for a Vietnam VET experiencing PTSD. Turns out to be extremely beneficial in these instances. A recommended read.

I've been reading this since January for a certification program in EMDR and I finally finished today. As far as textbooks go this one is pretty readable but I'm still really glad to be done!

The book does a great job of explaining the whole protocol but it definitely needs to be used in conjunction with coursework and clinical supervision-the book alone is not enough by any means.

The textbook for EMDR; an indispensable tool for the modern trauma therapist. A modality that has forced the field to rethink what therapy looks like.

The text outlines the basic procedure of EMDR with additional attention given to specific situations and populations. Read it while taking a training to enrich the whole learning experience.

Read through majority of book (first 8 chapters) and will complete as I use the technique and further my formal training on subject. Is clearly a text book and it best accompanied by the formal training to appreciate the topic.

I love this stuff! I don't even use the eye-movement with my clients anymore because LDSFS doesn't allow it, but the techniques and the concepts taught in this book have helped me reduce post-trauma in hundreds of clients.

Great book. Just real technical and definitely a textbook type read which is difficult for my brain to maintain focus so that's more about me and not about the author so I will change my 4 stars to a 5
