    EMDR is a Highly Effective Therapy for PTSD among other disorders

    I am a certified EMDR therapist, consultant and facilitator of basic training’s for EMDR therapy. I have all 3 editions of Francine Shapiro’s books which I ordered from inlori. I bought this book to read the new additions to her book and to stay up to date with her new findings. I would recommend any practicing clinician to read this book and take the EMDR basic training, it will change your practice and help your patients in profound and significant ways. Client/patients are often baffled by the effectiveness of this treatment especially when they have been treated with other therapies in the past that only brought temporary relief to their symptoms. I’ve heard multiple times from recipients of this therapy, that it has changed their life in significant ways, “the memory is there, but the disturbance is gone” is a recent expression from a client of mine. I would recommend this book to any psychologist, doctor, nurse, graduate student or counselor, and take the EMDR training- your life as a treatment provider will forever change.

    A significant presentation of the state of the art

    The third edition has been some time in coming – since the second in 2001, we’ve seen ongoing research into EMDR as a psychotherapy and fascinating studies of the eye movements Shapiro posited as facilitating a neurological processing of unresolved experiences, more international and national agencies evaluating that research and determining EMDR is an effective therapy in the treatment of psychological trauma, and the continuous exploration of EMDR’s with other conditions. Yet the fundamental principles, protocols and procedures remain largely unchanged – given EMDR’s success before the presentation of the Second Edition, there is no surprise in this. What the Third Edition brings is more: more clarity, more experience, more research, more applications, and, the continuous thread from the beginning, more compassion. Clinicians familiar with the earlier editions will find that “more” amplifying and clarifying their use of EMDR and providing a solid, well established center to their work. Shapiro’s continuous insistence on empiricism, a position she still maintains, resulted in stability through the sometimes rough rapids of a paradigm shift in psychotherapy and this volume is the best expression of that shift. For clinicians just coming across EMDR and wondering what this is all about, maintain a healthy skepticism, read the book and get trained in the methodology, and try it with your clients. For these clinicians, “Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing” (3rd. ed.) maintains what was best in the first two editions – an invitation to learn this powerful therapy, one that makes use of their clients’ own ability to heal.

    Excellent! The first chapter or two are difficult to get through but it is very helpful for clinicians to learn the material before or after training.

    Excellent minus substance disorder language

    I love using EMDR thus far. So different from talk therapy but an additional tool in my toolbox that really helps some clients. I’m a substance use disorder specialist and I don’t like the outdated language of substance abuse (DSM IV language- stigmatizing) used in this text. Otherwise I love it!

    We all deserve a better quality of life...

    …and this book is a roadmap to this better life, where we ourselves, our children, our parents, our siblings… and even our pets are happier. EMDS makes it possible because when we change for the better we make life better for everyone around us. I love the book and I am forever grateful to the author. I am already experiencing change and wish everyone could understand how much they would benefit from EMDR.

    Dense but so interesting

    This book is super dense and kind of difficult to get through. But it was necessary to read before I attended the training. I did learn quite a bit, just give yourself time to get through it.

    Quality of pdf print and characters

    The book itself is excellent. The pdf version has several misprints of characters, i.e. “negative cognition.â€. This is throughout the book so far although I’m just at the beginning. It makes it difficult to read. Again, this is a pdf issue, not anything to do with the author or content.

    Professional workbook

    This EMDR textbook arrived promptly and was well packed. If you do the EMDR training, you will likely have access to this book at a lower price but may have to wait longer to receive it, as I would have. This is strictly a professional text that although interesting in its own right, would be of little or no use to the lay-person. DO NOT consider buying this book in order to try doing EMDR on others unless you have also taken extensive training in EMDR, hold a master’s degree, and are a registered clinician.
