In this remarkable book, Dr. Francine Shapiro, the originator and developer of EMDR, explains how she created Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), how it works, and how it can help those who suffer from debilitating behaviors, anxiety, and stress.

Includes an extensive list of EMDR resources and directions for finding and choosing one of the more than 20,000 trained EMDR therapists in the United States

EMDR in my own experience has helped my own PTSD. We need more books about it.
Empowerment you know?
So, if you want examples of cases, read this book. If you want to know the protocols, get the textbook. They are both good. Some of the cases are somewhat graphic in detail, but you get a better idea of "how" EMDR is used. It is a good companion to the text.
I'm not sure I'd want a client to read this book, unless I'd carefully thought about how it would impact them. These are not your run of the mill cases. The majority of cases have suffered extremely horrific traumas to better illustrate how well EMDR can work.
