Publisher's Summary

Have you heard of EMDR therapy? Although this therapy comes from the United States, more and more psychologists use it in many countries, since most psychologists are aware that when trauma exists, there is a disconnection between the past and the present, between emotions and cognition.

This rupture makes conventional therapeutic approaches difficult, making talking or bringing up old emotions not only not effective, but sometimes it can even make the patient more sensitive. Explaining trauma is not enough.

So a Californian psychologist began working on a revolutionary technique called Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). 

It all started in 1987, while Francine Shapiro, a Senior Researcher at the Mental Research Institute in Palo Alto, California, was taking a walk in the park. Then she realized that the thoughts that disturbed her had disappeared, and, later, when they returned, they no longer bothered her as before.

Paying more attention, he realized that when a disturbing thought came to his mind, his eyes began to move quickly. Then she began to experiment, thinking about past experiences that still bothered her while moving her eyes.

He then began applying the EMDR technique to his patients, to help them process traumatic memories. Its results were excellent since EMDR allows you to work with the trauma by reprocessing it to leave behind painful emotions.

I'm glad to hear about those methods by this book

The best book I have ever had from the beginning was secured. It was extremely clever and enlightening. It's only a generally listen. I am all the better for having tuned in and will start from the very beginning once more. A delight.

This audible listened to with Satisfactory

EMDR really helped me clear up several issues in my life. I was hoping that the book had some insight into how to make it work outside of a therapist's office. It did not.

The narration of the book is fully like its name

Was hoping for an overview of how emdr works. This is a collection of stories of people helped by emdr. That's helpful, but gets repetitive.

A comprehensive guide to turning me feel deeply

Cut the case histories down by 90% and stop bigging up your therapy TAL and running down every other form of therapy. Very unprofessional.

It gives us a practical and logical explanation

It starts with a good explanation of EMDR, and then ab extended review of cases superficially presented, summarizing in 'this is the great, I am great'. Not enough value for the listener.

Excellent Introduction By The Originator

This is a short and clear introduction to a new (to me, at least), cutting-edge therapy that seems to get spectacular results. I think lay people as well as professionals would enjoy this book; it's that listenable.

Helpful at Home & with Therapist

My therapist and I listen this book while going through EMDR therapy. It helps focus my mind while going through our sessions. It's so helpful you can do EMDR at home. Not only that, the author explains trauma and how EMDR therapy works to resolve it.
