Therapists interested in learning more about working with addictions through the lens of trauma, and how to stabilize clients using EMDR Therapy to give clients ease in their body and mind might be interested in the following sample of the books that Barb Maiberger and John Gray recommend in their EMDR Advanced Training, “Addictions and EMDR Therapy”
- Treating Addictions With EMDR Therapy and the Stages of Change ~ Abel, N., O’Brien, J.
- A Woman’s Way through the Twelve Steps ~ Covington, S.
- In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts: Close Encounters with Addictions ~ Gabor, M.
