Summary

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 listeners how to do it in practice, not just in theory. In short, this is the new, practical book on EMDR.

Great for newly qualified EMDR therapists

I've been practising EMDR for the past 4 years but I must admit I did feel like parts of my understanding were inaccurate coming from a CBT background, this audio book was a great reassurance that I was doing EMDR correctly. EMDR can be daunting for the newly trained therapist as it may be different to their core model (in my case CBT) as EMDR incorporates lots of different models, but this book is a great overview and refresher. Not a book for anyone that hasn't done an accredited training course in EMDR (it will just confuse you even more). Laurel appears to come from a very psychodynamic background and some of the theory clashed with my CBT outlook. The narrator is quite robotic which I found a little difficult to connect with at times and you can tell they aren't a therapist in the way they narrate but that's OK.
