Description 

This second edition teaches therapists to effectively use the entire EMDR therapy eight-phased treatment with children of all ages from infants to adolescents. The book details changes to the phases of EMDR therapy (history taking, case conceptualization, and treatment planning) along with alterations to case conceptualization for target identification and organization. It incorporates newly published research documenting current evidence-based support of EMDR therapy with children.

Basic skills for using EMDR therapy with children are explained, as well as transitions to more advanced skills for working with infants and toddlers, children with intellectual and developmental disabilities, and children in the welfare system. It integrates play therapy and other forms of expressive therapies. Specialty topics on using EMDR therapy include case conceptualization with diagnoses defined by the DSM-5 and ICD-10, newborn/neonate diagnoses, children with chemical dependency, and many more. Case studies woven throughout the text clearly demonstrate EMDR therapy applications, and summaries of published evidence support the efficacy of EMDR therapy, including studies from WHO and SAMHSA. Expanded to include all eight phases of EMDR therapy for infants and toddlers, preteens, and adolescents, this book continues to be the foundational EMDR text for therapists working with children.
