Tools for the Clinician

Author: Donald DeGraffenried LCSW



Brings a unique focus to therapeutic treatment of violent crime victims

This innovative, hands-on manual provides clinicians with solution-focused EMDR therapy treatment tools specifically geared for use with victims of violent crimes, such as homicide survivors and victims of domestic violence, violent crime, and domestic terrorism. The book features three highly flexible protocols—Recent Event Protocol (REP), Eye Movement Desensitization (EMD), and the Standard EMDR Eight Phase Model tailored for brief treatment--that can be successfully used in non-profit agencies, community mental health settings, and private practice to help survivors recover from trauma.

Providing case examples, the author describes an easy-to-use Visual Assessment Tool (VAT) that can be used with the three protocols to help EMDR clinicians visually identify, record, and organize relevant information about the traumatic event. The book highlights affect management tools--Heart Math, Healing Light Visualization, and Stop Sign--that are especially helpful with victims of violence. Abundant case examples and verbatim scripts with detailed instructions enhance the hands-on learning and direct application of these tools. Additionally, the scripts, the Visual Assessment Tool, and affect management tools are available as a digital download.
