"Dr. Paul Miller takes EMDR theory, research, and practice a major step forward with his new book. [He] explores the way both researchers and clinicians can successfully integrate EMDR theory and therapy into the current understanding and work with schizophrenia and other psychoses. I believe this volume will be a milestone in the development of EMDR." Udi Oren, PhD, President, EMDR Europe Association "The EMDR community has been waiting for Paul to publish this book! He has a tremendous reputation, nationally and internationally!" Uri Bergmann, PhD, Recent Past-President, EMDRIA Author, Neurobiological Foundations for EMDR Practice This groundbreaking resource is the first to apply EMDR therapy to individuals with schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders. Written by the recognized world leader in using EMDR therapy to treat psychoses, the book delivers state-of-the-art research on this topic. It demonstrates how EMDR therapy can be safely used to help individuals with schizophrenia and other psychoses by formulating these disorders within a trauma and dissociation model. The book describes ICoNN (Indicating Cognitions of Negative Networks), an easy-to-use modification to the standard EMDR therapy eight-phase model, and includes actual case studies to illustrate its use. These case studies of patients that have been successfully treated with EMDR therapy serve as valuable templates for clinicians regarding obtaining patient histories, examining mental states, case formulation, and treatment planning. Scripted materials provide additional guidance to therapists working with this client group. The book traces the evolution of the phenomenology of psychoses from Kraepelin's dementia praecox through to Kendler's substantial nosological contribution to the modern phenotype for schizophrenia. Using Kendler's criteria, it aids the clinician in identifying those clients most likely to benefit from EMDR therapy. The book demonstrates how to formulate cases within a trauma model to facilitate the strong therapeutic rapport needed when treating patients with psychoses. It describes the ICoNN model, which provides a semistructured method of formulating and treating complex cases, and underscores its value as a unifying model that facilitates research. Chapters reinforce the theoretical foundations of EMDR therapy through learning objectives and summaries covering historical, phenomenological, and clinical facets of EMDR therapy with psychotic patients. KEY FEATURES: Guides clinicians in the safe, proven use of EMDR therapy to treat psychoses Authored by a recognized world leader in EMDR therapy for treatment of psychoses Describes ICoNN, an easily understood adaptation to the standard 8-phase EMDR therapy model Summarizes the trauma and dissociation literature Provides case examples and scripted materials to guide the therapist

An invaluable sourcebook on the complex relationship between psychosis, trauma, and dissociation, thoroughly revised and updated This revised and updated second edition of Psychosis, Trauma and Dissociation offers an important resource that takes a wide-ranging and in-depth look at the multifaceted relationship between trauma, dissociation and psychosis. The editors – leaders in their field – have drawn together more than fifty noted experts from around the world, to canvas the relevant literature from historical, conceptual, empirical and clinical perspectives. The result documents the impressive gains made over the past ten years in understanding multiple aspects of the interface between trauma, dissociation and psychosis. The historical/conceptual section clarifies the meaning of the terms dissociation, trauma and psychosis, proposes dissociation as central to the historical concepts of schizophrenia and borderline personality disorder, and considers unique development perspectives on delusions and the onset of schizophrenia. The empirical section of the text compares and contrasts psychotic and dissociative disorders from a wide range of perspectives, including phenomenology, childhood trauma, and memory and cognitive disturbances, whilst the clinical section focuses on the assessment, differential diagnosis and treatment of these disorders, along with proposals for new and novel hybrid disorders. This important resource: • Offers extensive updated coverage of the field, from all relevant perspectives • Brings together in one text contributions from scholars and clinicians working in diverse geographical and theoretical areas • Helps define and bring cohesion to this new and important field • Features nine new chapters on: conceptions of trauma, dissociation and psychosis, PTSD with psychotic features, delusions and memory, trauma treatment of psychotic symptoms, and differences between the diagnostic groups on hypnotizability, memory disturbances, brain imaging, auditory verbal hallucinations and psychological testing Written for clinicians, researchers and academics in the areas of trauma, child abuse, dissociation and psychosis, but relevant for psychiatrists, psychologists and psychotherapists working in any area, the revised second edition of Psychosis, Trauma and Dissociation makes an invaluable contribution to this important evolving field.

EMDR Therapy is a psychotherapy approach based on standard procedures and protocols. Using EMDR Therapy’s standard procedures and protocols as its template, this book presents step-by-step scripts that enable new practitioners and seasoned EMDR clinicians, trainers, and consultants alike to incorporate EMDR Therapy into their case conceptualizations and treatment plans while working with patients who have issues related to trauma- and stressor-related conditions. These scripts can be put to use immediately and retain the complete integrity of EMDR Therapy by presenting the three-prong protocol (past memories, present triggers, and future templates) and the 11-step procedure essential to the standard practice of EMDR Therapy. They reinforce the specific parts, sequence, and language used to create an effective outcome, and illustrate how clinicians are using this framework to work with a variety of therapeutic difficulties and modalities while maintaining the integrity of the Adaptive Information Processing (AIP) model. This text covers the use of EMDR Therapy with such conditions as reactive attachment disorder, PTSD, acute stress disorder, and persistent complex bereavement disorder, as well as with traumatized patients with psychosis, trauma in emergency (911) telecommunicators, and compassion fatigue. Scripts and summary sheets simplify the gathering of information and ensure documentation in clients’ charts in a consistent format. This facilitates quick retrieval of the essential issues and components needed by clinicians to create appropriate treatment plans and easy access to client information. Key Features: Describes how to use EMDR Therapy based on its standard procedures and protocols Addresses working with issues related to patients with trauma- and stressor-related conditions such as reactive attachment disorder, PTSD, acute stress disorder, and persistent complex bereavement Provides step-by-step scripts that enable practitioners to enhance their expertise more quickly and assist consultants with consultation Describes the three-prong protocol and the 11-step procedure essential to EMDR practice Includes summary sheets for each protocol to facilitate the gathering and quick retrieval of client information Emphasizes the importance of self-care for clinicians Available in print, ebook, and CD-ROM

Die Integrierte neurokognitive Therapie (INT) ist ein Gruppentherapieansatz, der erstmals alle Bereiche der MATRICS-Initiative des NIMH (National Institute of Mental Health, USA) in ein umfassendes Therapiekonzept integriert (MATRICS: Measurement and Treatment Research to improve Cognition in Schizophrenia). Diese Initiative definierte 11 neuro- und sozialkognitive Funktionsbereiche, die für schizophren Erkrankte relevant sind und deren Stärkung eines der wichtigsten Therapieziele sein muss. Die INT basiert auf den kognitiven Unterprogrammen des weitverbreiteten und umfassend evaluierten Integrierten psychologischen Therapieprogamms (IPT). Die INT ist ein ressourcen- und recovery-orientierter Ansatz, der auch die Verbesserung von Therapiemotivation und Selbstwahrnehmung zum Ziel hat. Der Fokus liegt konsequent auf der Gruppendynamik und dem Selbst- und Alltagsbezug der Patienten. Übergeordnetes Ziel ist die Erhöhung der Lebensqualität und -funktionalität und damit die Wiedereingliederung der Patienten in die Gesellschaft. Das vorliegende Manual - ... bietet dem Kliniker einen gut verständlichen Einstieg in die Behandlung von Neuro- und sozialen Kognitionen im Rahmen eines umfassenden und gut aufeinander abgestimmten Therapie- und Behandlungsangebots - ... beschreibt detailliert und gut strukturiert den Aufbau der INT in 4 Modulen - ... veranschaulicht mit zahlreichen Fallbeispielen das therapeutische Vorgehen auch in schwierigen Therapiesituationen - ... enthält umfangreiche und teilweise computergestützte Therapiematerialien, die sich patientenorientiert und vielfältig – auch im Einzelsetting – einsetzen lassen - ... thematisiert in kleineren Einheiten mögliche Indikationsstellungen, eine sorgfältige und individuell abgestimmte Therapieplanung („Fallkonzeption“) und Implementierung der INT Die INT wurde von Therapeuten und Patienten sehr gut angenommen und durch eine internationale, randomisierte Multicenterstudie in Deutschland, Österreich und der Schweiz erfolgreich evaluiert. Das Manual eignet sich hervorragend zur Vorbereitung und Durchführung von Therapiesitzungen.

"This volume is a welcome and excellent resource for all clinicians working with severely traumatized children." Francine Shapiro, PhD Founder, EMDR Humanitarian Assistance Programs "Over the past 15 years, Ms. Gomez has developed highly original and brilliant interventions for working with these very difficult to treat children. This book will be an enormous great gift to our field." Dr. Susan Coates Clinical Professor of Psychology in Psychiatry College of Physicians and Surgeons Columbia University This is the first book to provide a wide range of leading-edge, step-by-step strategies for clinicians using EMDR therapy and adjunct approaches with children with severe dysregulation of the affective system. Written by an author internationally known for her innovative work with children, the book offers developmentally appropriate and advanced tools for using EMDR therapy in treating children with complex trauma, attachment wounds, dissociative tendencies, and compromised social engagement. The book also presents the theoretical framework for case conceptualization in EMDR therapy and in the use of the Adaptive Information Processing model with children. Principles and concepts derived from the Polyvagal Theory, affective neuroscience, attachment theory, interpersonal neurobiology, developmental neuroscience and the neurosequential model of therapeutics, which can greatly support and expand our understanding of the AIP model and complex trauma, are presented. The text also offers an original and pioneering EMDR therapy-based model to working with parents with abdicated caregiving systems. The model is directed at assisting parents in developing the ability for mentalization, insightfulness, and reflective capacities linked to infantís development of attachment security. A unique and innovative feature of this book is the masterful integration of strategies from other therapeutic approaches, such as Play therapy, Sandtray therapy, Sensorimotor psychotherapy, Theraplay and Internal Family Systems (IFS), into a comprehensive EMDR treatment maintaining appropriate adherence to the AIP model and EMDR therapy methodology. Key Features: Provides creative, step-by-step, ìhow-toî information about the use of EMDR therapy with children with complex trauma from an internationally known and innovative leader in the field Explores thoroughly the eight phases of EMDR therapy in helping children with attachment wounds, dissociative tendencies and high dysregulation Incorporates adjunct approaches into a comprehensive EMDR therapy while maintaining fidelity to the AIP model and EMDR therapy methodology Contains an original EMDR therapy-based model for helping parents with abdicated caregiving systems to develop metalizing and reflective capacities
