Book Recommendations

Many Trainers have their area of expertise. For example, some work with children and others addiction. The 50 Basic Training curriculum is set and established by EMDRIA the credentialing and governing body of EMDR Therapy. Within this training the trainer’s personality and style are present. The first group of recommendations are standard EMDR books. There are also books related to working with children. The last group reflects my psycho analytic understanding of the EMDR process. The last group lists a few of books that I find seem to have nothing to do with EMDR but in reality they have everything to do with EMDR.
