This volume provides the definitive guide to Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), the psychotherapeutic approach developed by Francine Shapiro. EMDR is the most widely investigated treatment for posttraumatic stress disorder, and many other applications are also being explored. To keep up with this growing body of knowledge, the second edition has been revised to incorporate current neurobiological data, findings from controlled clinical studies, and literature on emerging clinical applications. Chapters provide background on EMDR's development, theoretical constructs, and possible underlying mechanisms, and present updated protocols and procedures for working with adults and children with a range of presenting problems. Among the many clinical populations for whom the material in this volume has been seen as applicable are survivors of sexual abuse, crime, and combat, as well as sufferers of phobias and other disorders. Detailed descriptions and transcripts guide the clinician through every stage of therapeutic treatment, from client selection to the administration of EMDR and its integration within a comprehensive treatment plan.
