Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) and energy psychotherapy (EP) continue to grow in popularity because they can produce deep and lasting psychological healing. Using the two methods together creates a unique opportunity to increase the effectiveness of both techniques even while extending the range of applicability of both methods. Psychologists John G. Hartung and Michael D. Galvin explore the territory where EP and EMDR meet, providing insight into the complementary nature of the two techniques and offering practical guidance to professionals and paraprofessionals as they investigate the possibilities of joining EP and EMDR.
Hartung and Galvin begin with the basics of EP and EMDR by discussing the histories, basic principles, and research pertaining to the two methods. A key issue is addressing the questions raised by therapists who are considering expanding their practice into this new territory: questions raised by EP therapists regarding the effectiveness and applicability of EMDR and similar queries from practitioners of EMDR about EP. Each set of concerns is answered point-by-point. Moving beyond the prejudices and habits of clinical practice, Hartung and Galvin show the complementary relationship that exists between EP and EMDR; the theoretical and methodological consonance they describe offers great clinical promise.
The middle chapters dig into the heart of the therapeutic matter?putting the resources of EP and EMDR to use with clients. Hartung and Galvin provide detailed and wonderfully organized accounts of their own clinical methods in EP and EMDR. These step-by-step descriptions not only show how they conduct EP or EMDR, but how they perform these techniques in a way that allows therapists to move from EP to EMDR and vice versa. The methods are structured but flexible, and, as featured in Chapters 5 and 6, allow therapists to creatively utilize the resources of both methods in a single, coherent, and productive session. Using rich case studies from their clinical practices, the authors demonstrate how EMDR and EP in combination can be used with greater impact to meet various therapy challenges: transference and countertransference, severe trauma, abreactions, dissociation, dilemmas, looping and blocking, so-called client resistance, and the problem of maintaining treatment effects. The later chapters focus on particular treatment situations and special applications of the authors' hybrid approach. EMDR clinicians will learn new strategies not taught in traditional EMDR seminars. EP practitioners will find a simple and effective format for teaching meridian-based therapies. Based on their extensive and international experience in conducting training workshops, Hartung and Galvin also describe the training models they have used to teach these treatments to professionals and paraprofessionals.
Hartung and Galvin offer a clear and comprehensive guide to this new therapeutic region. Whether practitioners or trainers, readers will learn how to use EMDR more carefully with clients who overrespond or underrespond; how to teach EP in an economical and useful way; and how to use advanced applications of the combined methods for a wide variety of populations including persons traumatized by natural disasters and interpersonal violence, offenders, and high achievers.
