Each chapter is written by a leading expert from every major psychotherapeutic orientation, and offers a rich and easily understood description of the specific therapy. Each chapter contains the interesting reflections of these leaders on the nature of therapeutic process and change. The book provides a unique perspective of the main schools of psychotherapy, demonstrating their commonalities, and illustrating how they can complement each other.
The authors discuss the integration of EMDR with their own therapeutic approach. Although the chapters are distinct in style, emphasis, language, and perspective, all share the same format and focus. Each chapter contains explanations of what that approach brings to EMDR and what EMDR offers that approach. Case studies and session transcripts provide fascinating examples and clearly illustrate the integrative treatment process.
The treatment of a wide range of complaints is described. These include depression, social phobia, marital discord, anger dyscontrol, attachment disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, body image disturbance, and other problems. As a clinician, I appreciated the practical details that illustrate the integrative application of EMDR with these other modalities.Read more ›
The key appears to be that bilateral work--as in Applied Kinesiology's "cross-patterning" and "cross-crawling" tends to recruit and integrate the two cerebral hemispheres, so as to expedite the higher brain's accessing of lower brain centers in the limbic system, so as to allow reprocessing of traumatic material which has been just setting there, like an undigested meal in the stomach, poisoning the client's life. I will add that I have found psych. "tapping" to dovetail nicely with EMDR technique. These tools work so well, that their operation may seem nothing short of miraculous to many. At least for some psych. problems, they work more rapidly than ordinary "talking therapy," and much more rapidly and effectively than psychoanalysis.
A criticism is that--as far as I can tell--no one in this book credits the work done by Dr. Jung. The Jungian complex is essentially the same as the PTSD phenomenon, which is discussed extensively throughout this book. And, no credit is allowed L.R. Hubbard.Read more ›
