Hailed as the most important method to emerge in psychotherapy in decades, EMDR has successfully treated psychological problems and illnesses--from depression, phobias, and recurrent nightmares to post-traumatic stress disorders and grief--in more than one million sufferers worldwide, and with a rapidity that almost defies belief. In this remarkable book, Dr. Francine Shapiro, the originator and developer of EMDR, explains how she created Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), how it works, and how it can help those who suffer from debilitating behaviors, anxiety, and stress.
