"On one level, this isan amazing and beautiful book about recovery from extreme trauma and abuseusing the powerful therapeutic container of EMDR. But more deeply, it isabout the transformational journey of individuation - the work of fulfilling thesoul's unique destiny in the face of daunting and even demonic forces opposedto that destiny. It is a story familiar from many great fairy tales andmyths and it is brought to life with all its perils and triumphs in the storiesthat unfold in Dr. Andrew J. Dobo's humble treatment room."

About the Author
Dr. Dobo is highly credentialed in the use of EMDR. He has a lifelong interest in psychology and religion. In 1977, he read a book that used Jungian theory to interpret the sayings of Jesus. John Sanford's book "The Kingdom Within" changed his view of Jesus and of psychology. He has been looking at the connections between these two disciplines his entire life. He thought he had nothing new to add to the conversation until he saw that powerful changes wrought by EMDR in his clients paralleled six distinct moments that are modeled in the Christian Passion.
"Unburdening Souls at the Speed of Thought" is a narrative nonfiction account of how his clients changed their lives and how their courage changed Dr. Dobo's view of his work, of himself, and of his God.
