Book Description

November 17, 2000 0393703266 978-0393703269

This ground-breaking book applies the principles of energy psychology and medicine to mindbody healing.

The focus of Eastern healing is on correcting imbalance of disharmony so that qi, the life force energy that generates harmonious transformation in the body, can flow freely again. Using vivid examples, this book explores the possibility that psychological methods can be used in a similar way to address subtle energies in mindbody systems and thereby restore health.

The author has presented highly acclaimed seminars on Ericksonian and clinical hypnosis, imagery, and ego-state therapy. Here she adds EMDR, thought field therapy (TFT), and body-focused therapy to the tools that can open inner pathways to healing that have been frozen by stress, past trauma, and developmental issues. Throughout the book she emphasizes the principles of gathering and building on strengths that each client already owns, using tools that provoke energetic flow to dissolve barriers to health, and selecting strategies that utilize the powerful effects of positive expectancy.

In the first four sections, vivid, intriguing stories illustrate how EMDR, hypnosis, imagery, TFT, and body-focused therapy can be used to solve the mysteries of health crises triggered by general stresses and anxiety, posttraumatic stress, and the challenges of organic conditions such as cancer, head injury, arthritis, and cardiac disease. The final section presents three creative models for combining and integrating energy therapies to increase healing possibilities for individuals with complex health situations that do not respond to any one approach.

Finding the Energy to Heal is an especially useful guide for professionals interested in cutting-edge methodology as well as for readers seeking solutions to perplexing health challenges.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Complete Book, Important for any EMDR Therapist December 12, 2000
I strongly recommendthis book to all EMDR practitioners. The chapters on EMDR are from my point of view, very encompassing complete and creative. In them the author explains concepts like Positive Image Installation, or Positive Target Image, Conflict Free Image, Resource Interweave, Ego State Therapy during EMDR without Hypnosis, Renurturing Interweaves, Developmental Learning Interweaves, concepts and procedures related to the Safe Place and Safe Place Image, Temporal Resource Interweave, and many concepts and resources which I had not heard of before and can really be very useful to any EMDR Clinician. She uses and explains EMDR in a very creative way that can be very beneficial to EMDR Therapists and Clinicians. The sections on Hypnosis, TFT, Imagery, Somatic Energy Therapies, and the one of Integration of Concepts are very useful.

5.0 out of 5 stars A book for therapists on the forefront October 21, 2001
I had an opportunity to review this book prior to its publication; that's how I first came to know Maggie Phillips. She is a highly accomplished psychologist and psychotherapist, and in this book she expertly integrates the best of traditional practice with cutting edge therapeutic processes. She also offers useful strategies for when to choose and how to combine hypnosis, EMDR, ego-state therapy, somatic therapies, imagery, and thought field therapy. An evolved perspective on energy psychology, "Finding the Energy to Heal" is required reading for therapists who take their craft seriously. --Fred P. Gallo, Ph.D., author of Energy Psychology: Explorations at the Interface of Energy, Cognition, Behavior, and Health, Second Edition (Innovations in Psychology), Energy Tapping, and Energy Tapping for Trauma: Rapid Relief from Post-Traumatic Stress Using Energy Psychology
