EMDR Solutions II: For Depression, Eating Disorders, Performance, and More

by Robin Shapiro, LICSW
book purchased separately

This edited collection―a follow-up to Shapiro’s successful EMDR Solutions―presents step-by-step instructions for implementing EMDR approaches to treat a range of issues, written by leading EMDR practitioners. The how-to approach, mixed with ample clinical wisdom, will help clinicians excel when using EMDR to treat their clients.

The book opens with multiple chapters exploring how to make optimal use of EMDR in the treatment of depression. Subsequent chapters present EMDR as an effective tool for addressing a wide variety of key clinical concerns, including eating disorders, performance anxiety and enhancement, complex trauma, and medically-based trauma. Concluding chapters present innovative and creative EMDR-based solutions for working with two very different populations: sex offenders, and religious or spiritual clients.

As EMDR matures, clinicians are using it to address the trauma at the heart of nearly every emotional or behavioral condition. This book contains a broad sample of creative solutions to many clinical conundrums. Covering a breadth of issues without sacrificing depth, EMDR Solutions II is an invaluable and practical resource for the EMDR practitioner.

Endorsements for EMDR Solutions II
“Robin Shapiro has assembled an impressive group of experienced EMDR practitioners who combine creative ideas with their solid understanding of EMDR to offer guidance to therapists working with diverse client populations. EMDR Solutions II provides therapists with a wealth of practical information and techniques. It is a welcome addition to the EMDR literature.” — Laurel Parnell, PhD, author of several EMDR books, creator of attachment-savvy EMDR trainings.
“Robin Shapiro’s second book is even better than her first, because it covers much more ground. Seasoned EMDR clinicians have contributed chapters strong in theory, practical techniques, and case examples which illuminate the use of EMDR. There is an emphasis on creative, yet practical, solutions that will enable EMDR clinicians to provide comprehensive treatment to clients with diagnoses such as eating disorders, complex trauma, sexual offenses, and attachment issues. Additionally, there are chapters that broaden our ability to meet our clients’ diversity of needs with spiritual issues, somatic issues, and childbirth-related problems. This book is a wonderful resource for the EMDR community.” — Carol Forgash, LCSW, BCD, former president of the board of HAP, coauthor of Healing the Heart of Trauma and Dissociation with EMDR and Ego State Therapy
