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 Network), 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 Kraepelinís dementia praecox though Kendlerís current DSM phenotype for schizophrenia. Using Kendlerís 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 semi-structured 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.
