Most importantly, listeners will learn techniques to improve their relationships, break through emotional barriers, overcome limitations and excel in ways taught to Olympic athletes, successful executives and performers.

  1. :

    Life is cumulative. Past experience builds upon more experience and we
    become who we are whether we’re conscious of it or not. Memories of these
    experiences are stored physically in the brain. Dr. Shapiro’s book helps
    people think about their lives and provides specific techniques to find the
    links to make sense of who we are. She provides real life examples to which
    one can relate, then suggests hands-on strategies and exercises that enable
    the reader to connect the dots, make new decisions, take different actions,
    and achieve the means to effect change and growth. However, nowhere in this
    book does she recommend or mention moving one’s eyes, nor does she suggest
    self-administered EMDR, because that would be clearly unethical and
    irresponsible. Rather, when an emotional problem is described, she offers a
    variety of self-help techniques that can be safely used. In addition, she
    offers guidelines for readers to decide if it would be useful to get
    professional help with an experienced EMDR clinician.

    Getting Past Your Past is full of accessible, empowering self-help
    resources. It’s a delight to read, difficult to put down, and has something
    beneficial and fruitful for everyone.
