Editorial Reviews

Review

"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


"This pragmatic book is important as the definitive presentation of the EMDR method....Clinicians will welcome its detailed explanation....Several case examples and five annotated transcripts nicely illustrate subtleties in the method and the therapist's client-centered role."--Contemporary Psychology
(Contemporary Psychology 2001-08-08)

"The writing is clear with general guidelines balanced by exemplary case illustrations to illustrate specific procedures and sample phrases to be used by the therapist....The description of the benefits to be expected is balanced throughout by descriptions of the special precautions, possible side effects, difficult populations encountered and procedural variations needed."--Psychotherapy in Private Practice
(Psychotherapy in Private Practice 2001-08-08)

"In a very few years, EMDR has grown from a bizarre sounding new technique to the most extensively researched treatment for PTSD (with numerous additional applications also being pursued)....A number of recent, rather convincing studies have established EMDR as a legitimate and powerful treatment."--Professional Psychology
(Professional Psychology 2001-08-08)

This restatement of Francine Shapiro's standard overview of Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)outlines the standard protocols for this proven treatment method. The methods, theory, and failsafe procedures are carefully explained for clinician practitioners. Careful liability reduction checks are examined and encouraged throughout the manual. This book alone is not a substitute for training in EMDR, yet will assist the new and veteran EMDR practitioner in remaining competernt in the skills and therory. I keep it handy for frequent review.

Very informative and helpful book. While written for professionals in the fields of psychiatry, psychology and mental therapy, it can also be educational for lay people with better-than-average vocabulary who want to know more about this important technique for treatment of people with PTSD, victims of rape and other traumas or long-standing and repetitive memories stemming from negative childhood experiences.

This is a very information book. I am in the process of becoming certified in EMDR therapy, and this book has really helped me to understand the origins of EMDR, the reasons why it works, and how to use it in my practice. This book is a very useful tool in addition to an EMDR training program.

Format: Hardcover
EMDR may be an excellent form of overcoming trauma, and the research tends to suggest it does, although if you read the literature in a disinterested way, you will find there are many mixed reports on study results. Some find EMDR equal to or better than Cog/Beh Therapy intervention; some find it better; some find it not as effective. As someone who has conducted experimental research, I wish to point out several issues that should be addressed, even for true believers. First, EMDR is a perfect intervention for a technological age: after all, don't all our life's problems supposedly have a technological solution. Our culture says so, but of course, history tells us otherwise. Spiritual meaning, social integration, a personal credo, culture and religion still appear to be the ingredients that hold us together..or as Paul Tillich says, "Our ground of being." Technology may be helpful but it is ultimately ancillary. Of course, those who suffer from trauma may require immediate relief, and if EMDR can reduce suffering efficiently and quickly, that's fine. HOWEVER, that being said, one must look a bit further. First, one must consider the individual client him/herself. EMDR helps us return to a traumatic event, see it more objectively, and hopefully allows us to use our reasoning faculties which may not have been in play during such events owing to stress, shock, immaturity, ignorance, and so forth. However, we all have varied levels of experiencing or "reliving" memory. Some can visualize quite easily and can "see" the experience as vividly, even more vividly than the true life one. In keeping with Gardner's idea of "multiple intelligences," we should consider that different individuals have different "intelligences" in reconstructing or reliving events.Read more ›

This book is a companion to the live course, the foundation for EMDR. A must have text if you are a therapist using this modality.

I found the first 8 chapters to be well organized. The author does an excellent job of giving a description of what she will teach and then more thoroughly teaches the information in the following chapters. It re-enforced what I learned reading the first 2 chapters.
I look forward to reading the rest of the text.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I have the hardback and the kindle version. I have to admit I like the Kindle version better. Fast read, understandable, and so much better than then 1st edition (which I have as well). Shapiro is amazing in how she explains EMDR and walks you through every step with samples and examples. There is absolutely no way that one can not grasp EMDR from her in-depth research and writing. By the way her writing is clear, concise, and comprehensive. Even the Kindle speech-to-text is excellent. Definitely for professionals. Not that someone who isn't in the field would not gain insight from the book but it is targeted to those who wish to practice the modality. Why did I find the Kindle version better because I used speech-to-text which for me got me through the readings faster and with better understanding.
