Overview

Initially regarded as one of the most peculiar methods of psychotherapy ever devised, EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing) was introduced to psychotherapists 11 years ago when Dr. Francine Shapiro reported demonstrable rapidly effective treatment results. An early endorsement by the late Dr. Joseph Wolpe, a founder of behavior therapy, and confirmatory research studies have led to wide and rapid acceptance by practitioners.

Dr. Howard Lipke, the first clinician authorized by Dr. Shapiro to independently offer EMDR training, has written a book which elaborates on Shapiro's Accelerated Information Processing model in offering what Lipke calls the Four Activity Model (FAM) of Psychotherapy. This model advances the integration of EMDR theory and practice with dynamic, behavioral and humanistic methods, as well as with previous prominent integrative models.

Recognizing the commonalities in human healing/growth traditions, the text also offers therapeutic suggestions for use of EMDR that rely on the wisdom of previously established psychotherapies as well as that of religion and philosophy. While there is an emphasis on combat-related psychological problems, Dr. Lipke demonstrates how combat trauma and treatment contain the elements of a broad range of potentially traumatic events and the treatment of destructive stress reactions.

Indeed, Dr. Lipke's EMDR and Psychotherapy Integration has helped satisfy the need for a scholarly work on this demonstrably effective method of psychotherapy.

The book contains no figures.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Judith Flaxman, PhD (Illinois School of Professional Psychology - Chicago)
Description: This book describes how EMDR and other treatment techniques can be integrated into an overall model of psychotherapy, which draws on previous integrative models. The second part of the book provides illustrations of this model in action.
Purpose: The author's purpose is to offer a framework for psychotherapy integration and suggestions for a more fluid and creative way to do therapy. This is quite a worthy endeavor, and the book meets the goals very well.
Audience: This advanced book is written for researchers and mental health professionals who are already familiar with EMDR. The author is very well qualified to write this book. He is a very experienced EMDR researcher, practitioner, and trainer. He has also worked closely with Francine Shapiro, the developer of EMDR. In addition, he has spent many years working with the combat veteran population from which he draws his examples, and he is very sensitive to their needs.
Features: This book is straight-forward and concise. It is engaging to read because of the author's forthright acknowledgment of his own opinions and his excellent use of clinical examples.
Assessment: This thought-provoking book raises useful questions for both clinicians and researchers about the moment-to-moment decisions a therapist makes during a session. The author is an astute clinician and theoretician. He offers clinically testable hypotheses about how to make EMDR more effective and how to integrate it with other approaches to therapy. As psychotherapy techniques continue to proliferate, we need to develop theories that provide frameworks for understanding when to engage in the various therapeutic operations available to us. The author makes an excellent start on this by using information processing theory to provide unifying concepts for the activities that comprise psychotherapy.

Initially regarded as unusual and controversial, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) was introduced 11 years ago by Dr. Francine Shapiro. Lipke, the first clinician authorized by Dr. Shapiro to independently offer EMDR training, elaborates on Shapiro's modeling and presents a four-activity model of psychotherapy. This model advances the integration of EMDR theory and practice with dynamic, behavioral, and humanistic methods, as well as with previous prominent integrative methods. Annotation c.
