Whether we've experienced small setbacks or major traumas, we are all influenced by our memories and by experiences we may not remember or fully understand. Getting Past Your Past offers practical techniques that demystify the human condition and empower readers looking to take charge of their lives. Shapiro, the creator of EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing), explains the brain science in layman's terms and provides simple exercises that readers can do at home to understand their automatic responses and achieve real change.
FRANCINE SHAPIRO, PhD, was the originator and developer of EMDR. She was until her death in 2019 senior research fellow Emeritus at the Mental Research Institute in Palo Alto, California, and she founded of the nonprofit EMDR Humanitarian Assistance Programs.
