Description: Eye movement desensitization/reprocessing (EMDR) is an effective and efficient method of treating traumatic memories. This program is designed to help participants learn when and how to use EMDR, and to gain competency with EMDR. The book is an accessible, straightforward guide to learning and using EMDR. The book teaches a clear rationale and a systematic approach to trauma-informed treatment. The content and methods are research-supported and proven effective.
