This book is about developing an integrative model of doing EMDR psychotherapy in a multi-faceted way in order to get close to children’s reality and to help them and their families heal. It explains how emphasis has to be placed on several fundamental elements including attachment issues, family dynamics, developmental psychology, neurobiology and psycho-traumatology meet and are enlightening. The authors point out the necessity of trusting the process; believing in resources outside of them; developing attuned relationships with the children and their families; looking at life through the glass half full.

 Bob Tinker has endorsed the book and said that “…I am … impressed with the way these two clinicians interweave knowledge of research, developmental psychology, family therapy, neuroscience, and clinical cases into a tapestry of understanding that illuminates the field of EMDR therapy…”
