Working with patients with complex PTSD and dissociation is a challenging endeavor. Trauma therapists need to continually find resources to broaden their clinical thinking and strategies. EMDR has been research proven as the best approach to trauma treatment. Yet there are survivors of relational trauma who have been so badly damaged by the cruelty of others that they need additional approaches as well. They suffer from inabilities to regulate their affect, their consciousness and self perceptions. Short on trust, these survivors need an even broader approach to their suffering.The editors have gathered many experts in the field who explain in clear informative ways how to expand the clinician's abilities to work with this terribly injured population. This book blends concepts from neurobiology, hypnosis, family systems theory and cognitive therapy to enhance treating this population. It is a well written book that the novice as well as the seasoned clinician can benefit from. As a trauma therapist of 30 years I found myself enriched by the various ideas and strategies presented. The addition of ego state work in combination with EMDR treatment offers hope to therapists who have hard to reach patients.

Mental health professionals will really appreciate this informative text. Although it conveys complex concepts that will be of interest to seasoned therapists, it does so with a clarity that will appeal to the novice as well. Case examples, step by step protocols, research findings and comprehensive theoretical explanations deliver the information off the page and into the clinician's office. I bought this text because I practice both EMDR and Ego State Therapy but I have not yet seen a text that addresses both (although there are many books that cover each of these topics separately). I was not disappointed. Dissociation - a common symptom of trauma syndromes - is explained and addressed so that therapists can actually work with the phenomenon instead of pretending it doesn't exist! This is really a wonderful text with many excellent ideas and I highly recommend it to anyone who treats trauma (which means, any psychotherapist or counselor!).

I have recently taken EMDR I and am scheduled for EMDR II; I work in VA with a principal case load of pt's w/ PTSD. I find the EMDR process very helpful. This book helped alert me to issues and processes unique to combat veterans. I reccomend it for anyone working w/ complex PTSD. This is not abook that would be useful without the training in EMDR unless it motivates you to get the training.

Format: Hardcover
This was a truely terrific collaboration on the part of the editors and contributors. The population is very difficult to work with and most of the clients have been in the system for years struggling to find the right connection with the therapist who can help guide them to wellness. The book makes the assumption the reader has had training in some type of emotion and/or dialectical behavior training (to help stablize emotion & tolerate distress), trauma training (like EMDR), and experience with dissociative disorders. The work is hard. Carol presents at EMDR conferences and is down-to-earth, dedicated to her craft. Therapists working with this demographic are exposed to a narrow sphere depending on what their clients have been through. The chapters in the book expose the reader to other areas the reader may not have yet experienced and helps them to prepare for that eventuality. The editors/authors also encourage an eclectic approach (thinking outside the box, guys) that may help clients to have relief faster than using of just one type of intervention (i.e. use of ego states along with EMDR). Makes you think, ahhhhhh-- can I get back in touch with the folks I used to work with and have a do over?

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Working with clients who have big trauma, especially when it's complex big trauma has always been a challenge. Even with the power of EMDR it's definitely difficult work when there's a risk that clients might dissociate and then remain stuck in a dissociated state. This book deals with that risk and discusses ways that the therapist can help the client avoid getting stuck.

This book takes a very thorough look at Ego State Therapy, dissociation, advanced EMDR techniques, hypnosis, and ways of combining all these into a more secure and powerful way to support these clients. It's a wonderful read and has become a reference book for me in my practice.
I highly recommend this book for the practicing therapist.
