"This is an excellent guide to the theory and practice of EMDR. It provides great clarity to readers unsure of how this therapy is conducted. If you want to know about EMDR, this is the book to have." Score: 100, 5 stars


Learning to use EMDR safely and effectively requires the integration of a wide range of knowledge and skills. This guide serves as an orientation to the clinical, professional, and risk management issues that EMDR practitioners face in their daily practice.

Following the eight-phase model of EMDR, the book provides clear, detailed guidelines to utilizing the standard EMDR protocols for treatment of posttraumatic stress disorder, phobias, and panic attacks. Included are guidelines for case formulation, treatment planning, and preparing patients for EMDR reprocessing. The guide also contains sample consultation agreements and forms for documenting case summaries and treatment outcomes.

Key features:

  • Includes charts, forms, illustrations, tables, and decision trees to guide treatment planning and documentation
  • Presents case studies with transcripts illustrating the different protocols, as well as guidelines for informed decision making
  • Discusses ethical issues in clinical application, consultation, supervision, and research

With clear, concise treatment guidelines on the clinical use of EMDR, this book serves as an invaluable resource for practicing clinicians, supervisors, consultants, and clinic directors.

After more than thirty years of clinical practice as a psychiatrist, many of them dedicated to trauma field and the last ten using mainly EMDR, I can say that Dr. Leeds has fulfilled the feeling I had about EMDR: it is a broad spectrum psychotherapy, if you want. Dr. Leeds offers us many approaching modalities to show us the most historical and updated issues in EMDR. He is rigorous with the written material, he is generous in giving us examples, he is didactic in his explanations and using tables, and frames that contain procedural steps. One of the crucial interventions in EMDR like the cognitive interweave has, for me, innovative examples that strengthen and stimulate the view I had about it. Dr. Leeds has done a wide, serious, generous and long scope work.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Compendium of EMDR Wisdom September 24, 2009
Dr Leeds book is a comprehensive collection of the basic information that all EMDR Consultants need if they purport to be mastering the basic protocol to impart it to others. EMDR Clinicians will be well served by relying heavily on the information in this important reference in their daily practices and study groups. Because Dr Leeds has been teaching the standard EMDR protocols for most of two decades, there is no question he has not considered and answered. This book augments the standard EMDR text with a level of detail that has not been included in any other volume.

Dr. Leeds provides a detailed and thorough description of basic protocols for EMDR with interesting case examples and helpful diagrams. This book also offers much needed guidance for EMDR supervisors and consultants covering clinical and ethical issues. Included are forms that are precise and practical for the EMDR clinician, supervisor and consultant. I use Dr. Leeds book often as do my consultees. I highly recommend this book.EMDR and the Art of Psychotherapy with Children Treatment Manual
