EMDR Therapy is a psychotherapy approach based on standard procedures and protocols. Using EMDR Therapy's standard procedures and protocols as its template, this book presents step-by-step scripts that enable new practitioners and seasoned EMDR clinicians, trainers, and consultants alike to incorporate EMDR Therapy into their case conceptualizations and treatment plans while working with patients who have issues related to trauma, and stressor-related conditions. These scripts can be put to use immediately and retain the complete integrity of EMDR Therapy by presenting the three-prong protocol (past memories, present triggers, and future templates) and the 11-step procedure essential to the standard practice of EMDR Therapy. They reinforce the specific parts, sequence, and language used to create an effective outcome, and illustrate how clinicians are using this framework to work with a variety of therapeutic difficulties and modalities while maintaining the integrity of the AIP model.
This text covers the use of EMDR therapy with such conditions as reactive attachment disorder, PTSD, acute stress disorder, persistent complex bereavement disorder, traumatized patients with psychosis, trauma in emergency (911) telecommunicators, and compassion fatigue.
