Neurobiological Foundations for EMDR Practice

Author: Uri PhD Bergmann
Publisher: Springer Publishing Co Inc
Category: Abnormal Psychology, Neurology & Clinical Neurophysiology, Clinical Psychology, Psychotherapy
Book Format: Paperback

This volume examines the latest neuroscience research relevant to the understanding of attachment traumatic stress and dissociation, in regard to successful treatment outcome of Eye Movement Desensitization (EMDR) and other psychotherapeutic modalities. It is the first to comprehensively integrate new findings in information processing, consciousness, traumatic disorders of information processing, chronic trauma and autoimmune compromises, and EMDR's underlying mechanisms of action.

Part I addresses online/wakeful information processing and off-line sleep information processing. Part II examines disorders of consciousness including coma, anesthesia and other neurological disorders, particularly disorders of Type 1 PTSD, Complex PTSD/Dissociative Disorders, and Personality Disorders. Part III delves into chronic trauma and autoimmune function, particularly in regard to diseases of unknown origin. Part IV integrates all material to illustrate the ability of EMDR's bilateral neural stimulation to impact, mediate, and change the functioning of neural circuitry.

Key Features:
  • Promotes understanding and relevance of information processing in EMDR and all psychotherapy modalities
  • Offers the latest research in neurosciences relevant to attachment traumatic stress and dissociation
  • Explicates disorders as outcomes of chronically dysregulated, evolutionarily based, biological action systems
  • Illustrates EMDR's sensorial input to the brain as a neural catalyst that can facilitate repair of dysfunctional neural circuitry
