EMDR was first conceptualized by Francine Shapiro as the result of an accidental discovery in 1987. Now, as Shapiro comments in the foreword to Extending EMDR, it "has become a methodology that incorporates aspects of many of the major psychotherapeutic orientations into a focused approach for the treatment of a wide range of pathologies." By 1997 over 25,000 clinicians had been trained in EMDR, with the number being trained through the EMDR Institute growing each year. This book picks up where formal EMDR training leaves off. Research has now shown that EMDR is powerfully effective in the treatment of residual psychological effects of a single-incident trauma. Through case studies, this book explores other areas where EMDR may be helpful, including longterm childhood abuse and complex PTSD. The eleven case reports illustrate the application of EMDR to a broad range of cases.
The many clinical transcripts will help newly trained EMDR clinicians feel comfortable using EMDR with their clients and provide models for experienced EMDR clinicians to broaden their use of EMDR. The clear explanations of the treatment processes will demystify EMDR for both clinicians and clients. The introduction includes basic descriptions of EMDR and the accelerated information processing model, as well as definitions of its terminology. Each of the following chapters begins with a discussion of the contributor's background, the principles of the traditional treatment approach used before incorporating EMDR, and the ways he or she has integrated EMDR into that approach. The contributors, who represent various orientations, including psychodynamic, behavioral, cognitive, and systems, demonstrate the importance of procedural fidelity while extending EMDR protocols. Extending EMDR is divided into two parts: those cases in which it was possible lo target a relatively small number of distinct traumatic experiences, and those in which the clients' symptoms have resulted from ongoing childhood trauma or neglect for which they are unable to identify representative discrete traumatic events. The description of the client's treatment and progress is detailed enough to enable the reader to understand how the results were achieved. Finally, the duration and outcome of each case are evaluated. As Shapiro concludes, "EMDR is still evolving.... As this latest contribution opens the door to view the practices of o diverse group of seasoned EMDR clinicians, it also extends an invitation to its readers to consider the implications of an integrated focused therapeutic approach to the treatment of a wide range of often resistant pathologies. It also assists in defining the present boundaries of EMDR clinical application and invites readers to further extend the EMDR knowledge base in terms of both innovative and theoretical applications."
