This book provides a practical approach for the use of EMDR in the comprehensive treatment of complex PTSD (involving dissociation and other challenging diagnoses). The authors stress an integrated approach which combines the 8 phases of EMDR treatment with Ego State Therapy and dissociative disorder treatment strategies. The case examples clearly outline how to extend the EMDR Preparation Phase to create safety and stability necessary for trauma processing.
