Recently released in its second edition, this groundbreaking text continues to offer guiding direction on the frontiers of culturally informed EMDR therapy and the treatment of culturally based trauma and adversity.

Over twenty-five authors combine to address a diverse range of current and emerging topics. Ten new second edition chapters include a call for broader recognition of culturally based trauma and adversity within the trauma field, the core human need for connection and belonging, and strategies for clinician self-reflection in developing a culturally competent clinical practice that is multicultural inclusive, actively anti-oppressive, and grounded in cultural humility. Other new chapters offer considerations in working with Black, American Indian, Asian-American, and Latinx clients; immigration challenges; and social class identity.

Overall, this book provides graspable conceptual frameworks, useful language and terminology, in-depth knowledge about specific cultural populations, clinical examples, practical intervention protocols and strategies, research citations, and additional references. This text speaks not only to EMDR practitioners but has been recognized as a groundbreaking work for therapists in clinical practice. Purchase includes digital access for use on most mobile devices or computers.
