Overview

A Therapist's Guide to EMDR reviews the theoretical basis for EMDR and presents new information on the neurobiology of trauma. It provides a detailed explanation of the procedural steps along with helpful suggestions and modifications.
Areas essential to successful utilization of EMDR are emphasized. These include: case conceptualization; preparation for EMDR trauma processing, including resource development and installation; target development; methods for unblocking blocked processing, including the creative use of interweaves; and session closure. Case examples are used throughout to illustrate concepts. The emphasis in this book is on clinical usefulness, not research. This book goes into the therapy room with clinicians who actually use EMDR, and shows readers how to do it in practice, not just in theory. In short, this is the new, practical book on EMDR.

Enormously helpful as a follow-up to the Comprehensive Training (Parts 1 and 2). Laurel writes as she teaches - from real cases in an accessible, conversational style. Her genuine caring for clients and gifts as a psychotherapist are evident throughout. Not a book to be skimmed. There is so much valuable, helpful information in most paragraphs that you don't want to miss anything. I read this months after the training and most of the questions I had developed about my work were addressed. Her flexible approach to the work and recognition of the therapists process is encouraging and exciting.
