Description 

Demonstrates how mindfulness can greatly enhance EMDR treatment of trauma

Based on the belief that mindfulness is a critical component in the delivery of EMDR, this innovative text integrates mindfulness-informed practice with EMDR therapy to create an effective new approach for healing trauma. Based on current evidence-based research, the book demonstrates—with clear, step-by-step guidelines--how clinicians can conceptualize and deliver trauma focused care in both mental health and addiction treatment. Infused with practical applications, the book provides clearly articulated and effective approaches that provide a concrete beginning, middle, and end of treatment planning.

Following a description of the long history of mindfulness practices, the book offers guidelines for developing one’s own mindfulness practice—emphasizing the use of trauma focused language--and suggestions for teaching specific techniques to clients. The book describes both classic and creative mindfulness practices, including breath awareness/sensory grounding, breath meditation, body scanning, feeling tone meditation, labeling, standing meditation, walking meditation, and lovingkindness meditation, along with using day-to-day objects as a meditative focus, movement practices, the expressive arts, and other forms of creativity.
