EMDR has become an important tool in the use of treating trauma. As therapists have worked with this methodology, EMDR has been used in many different areas of human suffering such as addictions, anxiety, pain, dissociative disorders, and many other issues. Like "Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Scripted Protocols: Basics and Special Situations", this book outlines the standard that reflects the basic elements of 11-Step Standard Procedure of EMDR and the Standard Three-Pronged EMDR Protocol. This book, however, focuses exclusively on applying EMDR scripted protocols to special populations, including: children and adolescents, couples, clients suffering with Complex Post-traumatic Stress Disorder and Dissociative Disorders, clients with anxiety, clients who demonstrate addictive behaviors, and clients who deal with pain.
