"Parnell's book is well organized, easy to read, and gives clear examples of what the therapeutic process looks like when using AF-EMDR... This highly accessible book is a welcome addition to the EMDR library and will enrich and inform the skills of mental health professionals who work with relational traumas." "This book has a clear writing style, a balanced blend of neuroscience and clinical artistry, and an unwavering focus on various types of resources to help even severely traumatized clients repair internal wounds and develop new skills for healthy interpersonal relationships. Clinical examples from Parnell's own work, as well as extended cases provided by professionals she has trained and supervised, make the sound principles she espouses come alive. Ranging from a clear blueprint to prepare clients for intensive developmental reworking to advanced topics such as resource interweave sequencing, identifying and working with ego states that block processing, and the use of animals to repair disruption in early maternal attachment, Attachment-Focused EMDR contains something for every reader at every level of experience. Anyone who treats trauma will benefit from this well-crafted work. I cannot recommend this book highly enough!" -- Maggie Phillips, author of Healing the Divided Self "Realizing the critical importance of both client-therapist attunement and body sensory input, Laurel Parnell blends both to create a unique therapeutic container. Supported by many informative case study dialogues, this book provides a valuable template for the ideal therapeutic interactive process. This groundbreaking book is certain to set a new standard for trauma therapy." -- Robert Scaer, MD, author of The Trauma Spectrum and 8 Keys to Brain-Body Balance "Master clinician Laurel Parnell has written a book that does justice to the depth and effectiveness of her clinical work. Attachment-Focused EMDR reveals how healing deepens when the power of the EMDR method is brought to bear both upon clients' relational traumas and upon the healing residing in the genuine connection between client and therapist. Readers will benefit from Parnell's wisdom, clinical experience, and direct and down-to-earth writing style, as well as the case examples she provides with transcripts from actual sessions. I highly recommend this book-with its relational focus, it will enrich and deepen the practice of any clinician interested in working more effectively." -- Diana Fosha, PhD, Developer of AEDP, co-editor of The Healing Power of Emotion


Integrating the latest in attachment theory and research into the use of EMDR.

Much has been written about trauma and neglect and the damage they do to the developing brain. But little has been written or researched about the potential to heal these attachment wounds and address the damage sustained from neglect or poor parenting in early childhood. This book presents a therapy that focuses on precisely these areas. Laurel Parnell, leader and innovator in the field of eye-movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), offers us a way to embrace two often separate worlds of knowing: the science of early attachment relationships and the practice of healing within an EMDR framework. This beautifully written and clinically practical book combines attachment theory, one of the most dynamic theoretical areas in psychotherapy today, with EMDR to teach therapists a new way of healing clients with relational trauma and attachment deficits.

Readers will find science-based ideas about how our early relationships shape the way the mind and brain develop from our young years into our adult lives. Our connections with caregivers induce neural circuit firings that persist throughout our lives, shaping how we think, feel, remember, and behave. When we are lucky enough to have secure attachment experiences in which we feel seen, safe, soothed, and secure—the “four S’s of attachment” that serve as the foundation for a healthy mind—these relational experiences stimulate the neuronal activation and growth of the integrative fibers of the brain.

EMDR is a powerful tool for catalyzing integration in an individual across several domains, including memory, narrative, state, and vertical and bilateral integration. In Laurel Parnell’s attachment-based modifications of the EMDR approach, the structural foundations of this integrative framework are adapted to further catalyze integration for individuals who have experienced non-secure attachment and developmental trauma.

The book is divided into four parts. Part I lays the groundwork and outlines the five basic principles that guide and define the work. Part II provides information about attachment-repair resources available to clinicians. This section can be used by therapists who are not trained in EMDR. Part III teaches therapists how to use EMDR specifically with an attachment-repair orientation, including client preparation, target development, modifications of the standard EMDR protocol, desensitization, and using interweaves. Case material is used throughout. Part IV includes the presentation of three cases from different EMDR therapists who used attachment-focused EMDR with their clients. These cases illustrate what was discussed in the previous chapters and allow the reader to observe the theoretical concepts put into clinical practice—giving the history and background of the clients, actual EMDR sessions, attachment-repair interventions within these sessions and the rationale for them, and information about the effects of the

interventions and the course of treatment.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Dr. Parnell's book AF-EMDR is an invaluable must for EMDR therapists who want to take their work to the next level... 1. Dezember 2013
Von Nancy Ewing - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Laurel Parnell, Ph.D., clinical psychologist and international EMDR trainer and consultant, just published Attachment Focused EMDR (AF-EMDR) in late 2013. It brings together the culmination of her years of experience, evolved thinking and insights in doing, demonstrating and teaching EMDR and now AF-EMDR. Her book is an invaluable must for EMDR therapists who want to take their work to the next level. It is a clear, well organized, in depth, compassionate exposition of how to do AF-EMDR with clients who suffer early attachment wounds. She draws on Mary Main's, Ph.D. research on secure, ambivalent, avoidant and disorganized attachment styles. Dr. Parnell describes characteristic deficits in the sense of self and relationships of people who may fall into the latter three attachment styles and what they need in terms of AF-EMDR. She presents evidence that AF-EMDR changes the brain through laying down integrative and positive neural pathways. She inspires us with evidence that clients with traumatic childhoods can heal and develop what she calls "earned secure attachment" through the therapist's skillful empathic attunement to them and the neural network processing of AF-EMDR work.

Dr. Parnell explains how to proceed doing AF-EMDR sessions utilizing the Modified EMDR Protocol. Each session begins with positive resource installation before identifying the client's disturbing image, emotions, body sensations and negative cognition. Then it proceeds to the desentization phase--processing (with bilateral stimulation) the activated trauma memory networks until reaching a SUDS of 0 or 1 (with body scanning to check that processing is complete). It follows to installation of the positive cognition that arises spontaneously with the evolved picture, and ends with closure and debriefing. She explains how the Modified (simplified) Protocol that she teaches allows the client to freely process memory networks and how the more complicated Standard Protocol disrupts processing.

Dr. Parnell addresses the importance of assessing the client's capacity to process trauma and of installing positive protective resources before proceeding with processing. She explains how to identify the "target" and the technique of "bridging" that often takes the client from present to childhood trauma. She discusses how to bring attachment focus to the desensitazation phase of AF-EMDR and to navigate the client's processing of memory networks and when to return to "target". She elaborates on the use of "interweaves" to unblock processing and to faciliate integration of the adult with the child's perspective. She describes techniques to manage overwhelming abreactions, flooding and looping in the client's processing of traumatic memories and to maintain their sense of safety. She highlights the technique of guiding the client to develop a reparative "new mother or father" and filling in their developmental deficits with their imagined nurturing parent. Her book is filled with cases and examples of AF-EMDR sessions carried out by herself and EMDR therapists she has trained. The cases and sessions are poignantly illustrative of the specific techniques she teaches in each chapter. She advocates that doing AF-EMDR with clients who have early attachment wounds be done with consultation by a certified EMDR trainer.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Incredible! 14. Februar 2014
Von Jeffery S. Herman - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
As a long-time EMDR therapist, this book is a breath of fresh air. She says a lot of things I have found to be true, mainly about how the standard EMDR protocol pulls the client out of processing if it is applied blindly. She gives excellent suggestions on how to customize EMDR To the needs of the individual client.

Some of the most difficult clients are those who suffered attachment wounds in early childhood. I've used the techniques from this book and had good results. The Modified EMDR protocol Dr. Parnell identifies is rapidly becoming my standard protocol.

BTW, I emailed her company with a question about one of her distance-learning programs. She replied personally.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An excellent tool for blending two important modalities for healing one of the most prevalent problems! 16. Februar 2014
Von Sandy - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Bringing EMDR and Attachment Theory together seems to be a stroke of genius. I keep seeing statistics that claim that about 50% of the population is 'securely attached,' but I have my doubts - from the amount of relationship difficulties I've experienced, and witnessed in so many others, I think that figure is way too optimistic. We need as many tools as we can get to help folks learn how to 'do' relationship a whole lot more mutually satisfyingly...

This book gives effective and concrete tools to utilize with clients, especially ones who need more resourcing / front end work before being able to process complex traumas. I am happy to find a way to integrate attachment theory concepts with EMDR. Laurel Parnell is amazing!
