Top Customer Reviews
This book reflects the deep understanding of a master EMDR clinician, Mark Dworkin, who has been schooled in a variety of physiotherapeutic models which he has successfully integrated into his way of thinking about and working with his clients. Dworkin goes well beyond the boundaries of any one specific type of psychotherapy filling his book with frankly presented clinical cases and vignettes showing both his successes and failures. Indeed his honesty is remarkable. Dworkin has developed many strategies of self care that the general psychotherapist can adapt to help within the parameters of the system of therapy practiced. He beautifully describes what a great system of thought EMDR is and deftly illustrates how he has learned from counter transferential mistakes. Woven within the fabric of an EMDR session, this book provides an extremely helpful clinical framework for practicing a highly effective psychotherapy. I found reading it extremely useful and believe that this gem of a book should be on every practicing clinician's bookshelf.
The book will be useful to therapists who have just taken the training, but also to practitioners who have used EMDR for awhile. For the novice it can help him or her integrate EMDR into whatever methods were used prior to taking the training. And, for the experienced EMDR clincian, a lot of useful ideas are given for mastering the advanced and subtle aspects of treatment.
Overall, a well written, engaging book with numerous case examples that hold the reader's attention.
The book is brilliantly edited by Margot Silk Forrest whose work will be remembered from "EMDR-The Breakthrough Therapy for Overcoming Anxiety, Stress and Trauma".
"EMDR and the Relational Imperative" is a long awaited volume and belongs on every therapist's shelf.
