Hailed as the most important method to emerge in psychotherapy in decades, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing therapy (EMDR) has successfully treated more than one million sufferers worldwide for trauma-related conditions, as well as phobias and other experience-based disorders. EMDR is the essential guide to this remarkable therapy, written by its pathbreaking creator Francine Shapiro.
Drawing on the experiences of thousands of clinicians as well as a vast research literature on depression, addiction, PTSD, and other disorders, Shapiro explains how painful life experiences are physically stored in our brains, making us feel and act in counterproductive ways, and how EMDR therapy can bring relief, often in a remarkably short period of time. EMDR is essential reading for practicing psychotherapists and anyone who seeks to understand why we hurt, how we heal, and how we get better.
