“Parnell’s book is well organized, easy to read, and gives clear examples of what the therapeutic process looks like when using AF-EMDR. . . . This highly accessible book is a welcome addition to the EMDR library and will enrich and inform the skills of mental health professionals who work with relational traumas.”
- Milton H. Erickson Foundation Newsletter
“[T]his book is exceptionally well written . . . . Parnell has taken the original model and made it significantly more accessible within the framework of attachment repair and healing trauma. . . . I will be reading her book again and sharing it with my colleagues.”
“This book has a clear writing style, a balanced blend of neuroscience and clinical artistry, and an unwavering focus on various types of resources to help even severely traumatized clients repair internal wounds and develop new skills for healthy interpersonal relationships. Clinical examples from Parnell’s own work, as well as extended cases provided by professionals she has trained and supervised, make the sound principles she espouses come alive. Ranging from a clear blueprint to prepare clients for intensive developmental reworking to advanced topics such as resource interweave sequencing, identifying and working with ego states that block processing, and the use of animals to repair disruption in early maternal attachment, Attachment-Focused EMDR contains something for every reader at every level of experience. Anyone who treats trauma will benefit from this well-crafted work. I cannot recommend this book highly enough!”
- Maggie Phillips, author of Healing the Divided Self
“Realizing the critical importance of both client-therapist attunement and body sensory input, Laurel Parnell blends both to create a unique therapeutic container. Supported by many informative case study dialogues, this book provides a valuable template for the ideal therapeutic interactive process. This groundbreaking book is certain to set a new standard for trauma therapy.”
- Robert Scaer, MD, author of The Trauma Spectrum and 8 Keys to Brain-Body Balance
“Master clinician Laurel Parnell has written a book that does justice to the depth and effectiveness of her clinical work. Attachment-Focused EMDR reveals how healing deepens when the power of the EMDR method is brought to bear both upon clients’ relational traumas and upon the healing residing in the genuine connection between client and therapist. Readers will benefit from Parnell’s wisdom, clinical experience, and direct and down-to-earth writing style, as well as the case examples she provides with transcripts from actual sessions. I highly recommend this book―with its relational focus, it will enrich and deepen the practice of any clinician interested in working more effectively.”
- Diana Fosha, PhD, Developer of AEDP, co-editor of The Healing Power of Emotion

Some of the most difficult clients are those who suffered attachment wounds in early childhood. I've used the techniques from this book and had good results. The Modified EMDR protocol Dr. Parnell identifies is rapidly becoming my standard protocol.
BTW, I emailed her company with a question about one of her distance-learning programs. She replied personally.
