Interest in eye movement desensitization response (EMDR) is growing rapidly. It isn't a substitute for therapy; it's a useful tool for the psychotherapist. Since incompletely processed, upsetting experiences are primary sources of children's emotional problems, EMDR is valuable for those who work with children. This book is for therapists who know how to do therapy and want to understand how EMDR can fit in with what they already do.

Review quote

A very welcome addition to the EMDR literature. Dr. Greenwald places EMDR within a systemic framework with explanations of how to lead parents into a supportive therapeutic role. He carefully weaves together treatment suggestions from a wide range of sources to guide the clinician through practical and innovative variations that are suited for children and adolescents. In this excellent volume for the practicing EMDR clinician, special attention is given to the treatment of disruptive and conduct-disordered children. -- Francine Shapiro Ph.D, Executive Director, EMDR Humanitarian Assistance Programs, El Granada, CA I am convinced that EMDR is an effective treatment approach for those who seek relief from life-disrupting trauma symptoms. Greenwald has done a fine job of producing a useful guide for practitioners trained in EMDR to work effectively with children and adolescents. It represents the new traumatology paradigm that assumes that desensitization is probable, not just possible, especially with children. Long live the new paradigm! -- Charles R. Figley, Ph.D., professor and director, Florida State University, Traumatology Institute This exceptional book is imperative reading for professionals who provide services for children and for parents seeking help for their child. We have much to learn from Dr. Greenwald. In addition to guiding readers through the EMDR protocol as it applies to children, he models the essential elements of skillful communication and demonstrates through engaging case examples and creative metaphors the art of working with adolescent and young clients. This book, which offers specific tools for integrating EMDR into an overall treatment plan for disruptive behaviors and conduct disorders, gives us hope for working successfully with this very challenging population. -- Robbie Dunton, MS, Coordinator of the EMDR Institute, Inc.
