Brief therapy inside out: EMDR - Working with grief


Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) has been used effectively with a wide range of trauma victims. In this videotape, EMDR founder Francine Shapiro demonstrates her treatment approach with a client struggling with the sudden loss of her lover. As this video attests, changes that once took months, or sometimes even years, can with be effected much more rapidly with EMDR. This video is part of the "Brief Therapy Inside Out' series. This series puts viewers directly in the therapy room to watch as leading therapists show their approaches in action. Each video presents 1 45-min session-unrehearsed and with real clients. Each opens with an introductory interview with video series hosts Drs. Jon Carlson and Diane Kjos and the respective guest therapist. In a closing Q&A segment, important moments from each video are replayed to highlight turning points in the therapist-client interaction and key interventions.
