Название: Handbook of EMDR and Family Therapy Processes
Авторы: Shapiro F. (ed.), Kaslow F.W. (ed.), Maxfield L. (ed.)
This book is envisioned as a bridge for both individual psychotherapists and family systems therapists. Whether or not one practices EMDR, the individual therapist is engaged in a journey with clients to liberate them from the bonds of previous experiences that have chained them to unfulfilling repetitive patterns of emotions, thoughts, and behaviors. The family therapist similarly is attempting to help the system resolve destructive patterns of dislocation, chaos, or stagnation and develop healthier interaction and coping patterns. Various forms of family systems therapy (FST) have identified the subtle patterns of past and present family experiences that can be investigated to formulate targets for therapeutic attention. The EMDR processing can then liberate the client from these experiences, as well as address therapeutic impasses that have prevented current healthy familial interactions from taking place. When EMDR has prepared the client to relate to family members without the burden of reactive emotional baggage, FST can help teach family members how to interact with each other more positively and provide new models for healthy interpersonal communication. In turn, EMDR processing can help accelerate the learning process by incorporating templates for positive future functioning.
