Very useful tool for therapists
10 December 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A huge thank you to the filmmakers for creating this movie. EMDR's message of hope is spreading fast (through organizations like the EMDR Humanitarian Assistance Programs) but with this film it will spread even faster. It's an excellent introduction to the processes and potential benefits of this breakthrough therapy.

It's true that with a comfortable and open client/therapist relationship, the therapist's job becomes simply to follow where the mind takes the client. Therapists like me see in their practices all the time- the phenomenon where the brain "finds" the source of suffering. Clients may come in with an idea of what the problem is, only to find that it's something entirely different. It's truly amazing that the brain holds onto everything, no matter how long ago it happened. It's wonderful in a way because it allows us to access those memories, through EMDR, and put a client's suffering behind them.
