Delivers an EMDR model that can expand access to urgently needed mental health services while maintaining affordability

This innovative handbook is the first to present EMDR Group Therapy as a pragmatic approach to trauma care that enables practitioners to scale up mental health services while ensuring cost and time efficiency. It delivers step-by-step guidance--supported by real-life case examples--for practicing this safe, effective, and culturally adaptable modality in a wide range of situations and conditions. EMDR group protocols are applicable to inpatient and outpatient settings, strangers experiencing similar or different events, families, and a wide range of ages. The book explores how and why EMDR group protocols are applicable to disaster response, addictions, schools, medical challenges, grief, families, refugees, victims of sexual violence, emergency responders and more.

The text describes the theoretical underpinnings and practical applications of EMDR Group Therapy, comparing nine group protocols through the lens of the eight phases of EMDR therapy and early intervention principles. It emphasizes the concept of task sharing, allowing nonspecialist facilitators to deliver low-intensity EMDR treatment options effectively. To promote in-depth understanding, chapters provide Learning Objectives, Learned Through Experience boxes, Case Examples focusing on a variety of specific groups and problems, Discussion Questions to reinforce knowledge, and unique Pocket Guides refining protocols and derived techniques in a clear snapshot. A full Glossary of terms is also provided at the end of the book. Purchase includes online access via most mobile devices or computers.
