Format: Hardcover
Dr. Lovett, the clinical detective (behavioral pediatrician) writes poignant analyses of her work with childhood traumas great and small, in which she applies the bilateral stimulation techniques of EMDR. Her writing style is easy to read, and demonstrates the relative rapidity of trauma resolution when EMDR is properly interwoven into more traditional therapy. Her book is a valuable guide for clinicians skilled in the EMDR technique, as well as informative for parents considering such treatment for their child. As an EMDR therapist who teaches workshops on treating children, I highly recommend this engaging volume. Frances Klaff Ph.D.

Format: Hardcover
This is a well-written book about a pediatrician's experience with EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprogramming) as a healing tool for people suffering from the results of traumatic incidents. It would appeal to laymen as well as professionals. The intriguing stories are like little mysteries, which unravel in a hopeful way. The author experienced a serious car accident and was finally helped to overcome some puzzling symptoms with EMDR. She got training in the technique and began using it (with great success) in her practice. This book is alive with vignettes of children with problems that no one has been able to fix, but who have responded to EMDR. This compelling book would appeal to anyone interested in a short term method of overcoming limiting behaviors.

As a new member of the EMDR community, this book helped me understand ways to work with children Primarily a children's therapist who was looking for information on how EMDR & children go together. I would recommend this to any therapist who wants to understand EMDR with children.

I am a newly licensed therapist who recently took EMDR. I'm hoping to build a practice doing EMDR with children and adolescents, which is why I bought this book. I had a hard time reading this book; it was a little dry and heavy on the details of every session. I did like being introduced to cases and seing how EMDR was helpful, but I basically skim-read the book, and I'm not sure that it was worth buying. Maybe it would be of more interest to parents who are interested in EMDR for their children. I am hoping that "EMDR and the Art of Psychotherapy with Children" by Adler-Tapia & Settle or "Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing in Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy" by Ricky Greenwald will be able to help me more.
