"Francine Shapiro, Florence W. Kaslow, and Louise Maxfield have put together a book that will go a very long way toward meeting their ambitious goal of combining the EMDR and FST to 'offer the knowledge and procedures that will encourage immediate integrative clinical application.'"

Critical Acclaim for Handbook of EMDR and Family Therapy Processes
"A wonderful volume. . . If this book doesn't grab you, you are not interested in pushing out your boundaries and thinking and learning more about therapy. . . If some books can be described as a 'gold mine,' this one qualifies as 'platinum.'"
—William C. Nichols, EdD, ABPP (Diplomate in Clinical Psychology); former president of the International Family Therapy Association and the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy
"This book provides a clear and comprehensive bridge between individual and family therapies...An impressive and needed piece of work."
—David Servan-Schreiber, MD, PhD, Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center; founding board member of Doctors Without Borders
A groundbreaking new guide introducing a comprehensive approach for working with individuals, couples, families, and community disasters
Starting with the Foreword by Daniel Siegel, MD, the Handbook demonstrates, in superb detail, how to combine EMDR's information processing approach with family systems perspectives and therapy techniques. These two powerful approaches result in a comprehensive integrated treatment to make therapy more robust and effective. Whether the client is presenting with an individual or family problem, the combined approach offers a range of interventions to assist therapists with case conceptualization and treatment. This unique volume blends theory, practice descriptions, and case examples to illustrate the therapy process with a wide variety of presenting complaints.
Fascinating and readable, the Handbook is ideal for all clinicians, regardless of training or orientation, who wish to broaden their scope and increase their therapeutic effectiveness in the treatment of individuals, couples, and families.
