An indispensable resource for therapists and clinicians, this book lays out a step-by-step method for using eye-movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) to treat phobias and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). EMDR consists of eight phases that use eye movement and other forms of rhythmical stimulation to treat trauma victims by reprocessing disturbing thoughts and bringing about profound and stable clinical effects. The research investigating EMDR treatment of PTSD—most of which supports its effectiveness—is summarized, and the treatment protocols for approaches to EDMR’s use with other disorders are described in detail.

EMDR consiste de ocho fases que usan el movimiento de los ojos y otras formas de estimulación rítmica para tratar víctimas de trauma a través del reprocesamiento de pensamientos inquietantes y la generación de efectos clínicos profundos y estables. Se resume la investigación sobre el tratamiento de TEPT usando EMDR—gran parte de la cual apoya su eficacia—y se describen detalladamente los protocolos para el uso de EDMR con otros trastornos.
