Demonstrates how mindfulness can greatly enhance EMDR treatment of trauma.

Based on the belief that mindfulness is a critical component in the delivery of EMDR, this innovative text integrates mindfulness-informed practice with EMDR therapy to create an effective new approach for healing trauma. Based on current evidence-based research, the book demonstrates-with clear, step-by-step guidelines--how clinicians can conceptualize and deliver trauma focused care in both mental health and addiction treatment. Infused with practical applications, the book provides clearly articulated and effective approaches that provide a concrete beginning, middle, and end of treatment planning.

Following a description of the long history of mindfulness practices, the book offers guidelines for developing one's own mindfulness practice-emphasizing the use of trauma focused language-and suggestions for teaching specific techniques to clients. The book describes both classic and creative mindfulness practices, including breath awareness/sensory grounding, breath meditation, body scanning, feeling tone meditation, labeling, standing meditation, walking meditation, and lovingkindness meditation, along with using day-to-day objects as a meditative focus, movement practices, the expressive arts, and other forms of creativity.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Ever the easiest, most elegant and accessible writer, Dr Jamie Marich again pitches her ideas perfectly in her delightful new book, continuing the theme of making EMDR simple, along with her collaborator Dr. Stephen Dansiger. With Mindfulness the mental health flavour of our times, they offer EMDR clinicians and their clients a straightforward, unfussy and practical introduction to mindfulness techniques that mesh perfectly with the practice of EMDR. Dr Marich is increasingly viewed in the UK as one of the upcoming next-generation leaders of the international EMDR field, and we Brits look forward to her continued inspiration and to her new writings as EMDR takes its rightful place in the world of mental health as an integrated therapy able to work with the widest range of complex trauma-related presentations.--Mark Brayne, Psychotherapist, Co-Chair, EMDR East Anglia "Founder of EMDR Focus (London, England) "
"The authors, Jamie Marich and Stephen Dansiger, bring a wealth of knowledge and experience in this book which is a thorough manual, exploring the complementarity of EMDR therapy and mindfulness practice in dealing with trauma work. I was struck by the great care and attention taken to meeting the clients in a thoughtful, flexible, creative and caring way."--Martine Batchelor, meditation teacher and author of Let Go and Spirit of the Buddha
"This highly readable book takes the reader on a rewarding journey that moves from offering merely trauma informed care to delivering trauma focused care. The authors demonstrate how clinicians can take action to generate a complete system of care for those suffering as a consequence of adverse and traumatic life experiences. Readers will discover simple, practical strategies to integrate mindfulness principles into all eight phases EMDR therapy. All clinicians who confront the effects of trauma in their practices will find this book both informative and immensely practical whether or not they are yet trained in how to provide EMDR therapy."--Andrew M. Leeds, Ph.D. EMDRIA and EMDR Europe Trainer "Director of Training Sonoma Psychotherapy Training Institute; Santa Rosa, CA "
"It's wonderful to witness the coming together of mindfulness practice and contemporary psychology in the work of people like Steve Dansiger and Jamie Marich. Their book about mindfulness and EMDR has the potential to have a big impact, starting with clinicians who will value this contribution tremendously."--Sharon Salzberg, author of Real Love
"Marich and Dansiger's "EMDR Therapy & Mindfulness for Trauma Focused Care" is like a tree of wisdom whose branches are loaded with tools, scripts, worksheets and templates to guide beginner and experienced EMDR therapists. Planting the seeds of "Just notice" and 'Go with that...' in the fertile soil of 2600 years of Buddhist mindfulness, the authors highlight attunement as a mindfulness practice and emphasize the roots of mindfulness within the Standard 8-Phase Protocol. This firm foundation supports EMDR therapists in cultivating and maintaining a calming presence, a hallmark of mindfulness, as well as trauma focused care. The solid trunk of this tree traverses a trauma focused journey from preparation all the way to reevaluation and after care. The authors peek out from the lush canopy with personal narratives, client cases and the journeys of other clinicians. Following the tradition of his book Clinical Dharma, Dr. Dansiger emphasizes mindfulness as an important act of self-care for clinicians. Dr. Marich's "Dancing Mindfulness" practice shines in the creative expression of this book. An array of exercises are woven through the book and like sun-ripened fruit on the branches, their invitation is irresistible. From breath to movement, visualization to multi-sensory soothing, we are invited to become intimately familiar with the activities that will become valuable resources for our clients."--Rajani Venkatraman Levis, LMFT, PPS, CTS
