From the Publisher"This book brings to readers the combined experience and lessons learned from trauma studies pioneer Charles R. Figley and military trainer Mark C. Russell, both veterans and clinical psychologists who have spent decades in the mental-health trenches. Detailed scripts and actual clinical case examples help lead the therapist through the intricacies of each stage of treatment, beginning with suggestions for establishing the therapeutic alliance and overcoming the often encountered resistance, resentment, and distrust of mental health professionals. The authors’ comprehensive review of treatment issues pertinent to both active military and combat veterans provides invaluable guidance for clinicians of all orientations."
—Francine Shapiro, PhD, senior research fellow, Mental Research Institute and founder of the EMDR Humanitarian Assistance Programs
"Treating Traumatic Stress Injuries in Military Personnel is a fascinating examination of why and how EMDR is valuable in treating war-related stress injuries and medically unexplained symptoms. This book is a must read for any mental health provider who uses EMDR."
—Colonel David Rabb, Combat Stress Control, United States Army Reserves and OIF/OEF Veteran
"In this well-written volume, Russell and Figley provide the reader with six books in one: an in-depth treatment manual for EMDR, a practical discussion of some of the most important clinical issues in psychotherapy, a comprehensive guide to contemporary military culture, an analysis of types of military traumatic stress injury, a compendium of EMDR intervention protocols for military personnel, and a detailing of rich case studies that make EMDR with military populations come vividly alive. A superb resource for those working with the military, utilizing EMDR, or focusing on trauma."
—Therese A. Rando, PhD, clinical director, Institute for the Study and Treatment of Loss
"Everyone interested in evidence-based treatment of traumatic stress among veterans and military personnel should own a copy of Treating Traumatic Stress Injuries in Military Personnel. Russell and Figley have made a significant contribution to the literature on treating military personnel and veterans with traumatic stress using EMDR. This is a book that EMDR clinicians will value and consult throughout their professional career, and one that will be required reading for the clinicians we train at Soldier Center."
—E.C. Hurley, PhD, colonel, U.S. Army (Ret.) and executive director of Soldier Center
"Russell and Figley, being veterans as well as psychologists, recognize the knowledge deficit of MUS and effectively offer a broad lens covering topics that impact both clinical practice as well as applications within the military circle. To that end, they are highly successful in covering an extensive range of issues pertaining to MUS. In Treating Traumatic Stress Injuries in Military Personnel, Russell and Figley effectively synthesize the perspectives of the clinician and the warrior to provide an in-depth analysis and argument for the benefits of EMDR treatment."
