Editorial Reviews

Review

Parnell’s book is well organized, easy to read, and gives clear examples of what the therapeutic process looks like when using AF-EMDR. . . . This highly accessible book is a welcome addition to the EMDR library and will enrich and inform the skills of mental health professionals who work with relational traumas. (Milton H. Erickson Foundation Newsletter)

[T]his book is exceptionally well written . . . . Parnell has taken the original model and made it significantly more accessible within the framework of attachment repair and healing trauma. . . . I will be reading her book again and sharing it with my colleagues. (PsychCentral)

This book has a clear writing style, a balanced blend of neuroscience and clinical artistry, and an unwavering focus on various types of resources to help even severely traumatized clients repair internal wounds and develop new skills for healthy interpersonal relationships. Clinical examples from Parnell’s own work, as well as extended cases provided by professionals she has trained and supervised, make the sound principles she espouses come alive. Ranging from a clear blueprint to prepare clients for intensive developmental reworking to advanced topics such as resource interweave sequencing, identifying and working with ego states that block processing, and the use of animals to repair disruption in early maternal attachment, Attachment-Focused EMDR contains something for every reader at every level of experience. Anyone who treats trauma will benefit from this well-crafted work. I cannot recommend this book highly enough! (Maggie Phillips, author of Healing the Divided Self)

Realizing the critical importance of both client-therapist attunement and body sensory input, Laurel Parnell blends both to create a unique therapeutic container. Supported by many informative case study dialogues, this book provides a valuable template for the ideal therapeutic interactive process. This groundbreaking book is certain to set a new standard for trauma therapy. (Robert Scaer, MD, author of The Trauma Spectrum and 8 Keys to Brain-Body Balance)

Master clinician Laurel Parnell has written a book that does justice to the depth and effectiveness of her clinical work. Attachment-Focused EMDR reveals how healing deepens when the power of the EMDR method is brought to bear both upon clients’ relational traumas and upon the healing residing in the genuine connection between client and therapist. Readers will benefit from Parnell’s wisdom, clinical experience, and direct and down-to-earth writing style, as well as the case examples she provides with transcripts from actual sessions. I highly recommend this book―with its relational focus, it will enrich and deepen the practice of any clinician interested in working more effectively. (Diana Fosha, PhD, Developer of AEDP, co-editor of The Healing Power of Emotion)

Format: Hardcover
Laurel Parnell, Ph.D., clinical psychologist and international EMDR trainer and consultant, just published Attachment Focused EMDR (AF-EMDR) in late 2013. It brings together the culmination of her years of experience, evolved thinking and insights in doing, demonstrating and teaching EMDR and now AF-EMDR. Her book is an invaluable must for EMDR therapists who want to take their work to the next level. It is a clear, well organized, in depth, compassionate exposition of how to do AF-EMDR with clients who suffer early attachment wounds. She draws on Mary Main's, Ph.D. research on secure, ambivalent, avoidant and disorganized attachment styles. Dr. Parnell describes characteristic deficits in the sense of self and relationships of people who may fall into the latter three attachment styles and what they need in terms of AF-EMDR. She presents evidence that AF-EMDR changes the brain through laying down integrative and positive neural pathways. She inspires us with evidence that clients with traumatic childhoods can heal and develop what she calls "earned secure attachment" through the therapist's skillful empathic attunement to them and the neural network processing of AF-EMDR work.

Dr. Parnell explains how to proceed doing AF-EMDR sessions utilizing the Modified EMDR Protocol. Each session begins with positive resource installation before identifying the client's disturbing image, emotions, body sensations and negative cognition. Then it proceeds to the desentization phase--processing (with bilateral stimulation) the activated trauma memory networks until reaching a SUDS of 0 or 1 (with body scanning to check that processing is complete). It follows to installation of the positive cognition that arises spontaneously with the evolved picture, and ends with closure and debriefing.

As a long-time EMDR therapist, this book is a breath of fresh air. She says a lot of things I have found to be true, mainly about how the standard EMDR protocol pulls the client out of processing if it is applied blindly. She gives excellent suggestions on how to customize EMDR To the needs of the individual client.

Some of the most difficult clients are those who suffered attachment wounds in early childhood. I've used the techniques from this book and had good results. The Modified EMDR protocol Dr. Parnell identifies is rapidly becoming my standard protocol.

BTW, I emailed her company with a question about one of her distance-learning programs. She replied personally.

If you are an attachment focused therapist who also has an interest in EMDR this is an excellent book. It provides practical hands on help for integrating the two into your clinical practice.

Bringing EMDR and Attachment Theory together seems to be a stroke of genius. I keep seeing statistics that claim that about 50% of the population is 'securely attached,' but I have my doubts - from the amount of relationship difficulties I've experienced, and witnessed in so many others, I think that figure is way too optimistic. We need as many tools as we can get to help folks learn how to 'do' relationship a whole lot more mutually satisfyingly...

This book gives effective and concrete tools to utilize with clients, especially ones who need more resourcing / front end work before being able to process complex traumas. I am happy to find a way to integrate attachment theory concepts with EMDR. Laurel Parnell is amazing!

Laura Parnell is an extremely talented therapist/healer. I am grateful to have attended her workshops and for her open sharing her work in her books. I am particularly happy she has written this one from an attachment focused perspective. Very insightful, with an abundance of helpful ideas for therapists who use EMDR.

Almost like a course text book and I like the modified protocol Laurel Parnell uses. I will read it again and again. Pity a German translation is not available!
