Publisher Description

Whether we've experienced small setbacks or major traumas, we are all influenced by memories and experiences we may not remember or don't fully understand. Getting Past Your Past offers practical procedures that demystify the human condition and empower listeners looking to achieve real change. Francine Shapiro, the creator of EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), explains how our personalities develop and why we become trapped into feeling, believing and acting in ways that don't serve us. Through detailed examples and exercises listeners will learn to understand themselves, and why the people in their lives act the way they do. Most importantly, listeners will also learn techniques to improve their relationships, break through emotional barriers, overcome limitations and excel in ways taught to Olympic athletes, successful executives and performers. An easy conversational style, humor and fascinating real life stories make it simple to understand the brain science, why we get stuck in various ways and what to do about it.

    " I read enough of this book to gain an understanding of the scientific theory of psychological healing being proposed in this book. It was a bit too technical for my interests but probably excellent for serious students of psychology and practitioners of current therapeutic techniques. "

    " The old saying "sticks & stones may break my bones but words can never hurt me" is a lie. All of us, often unknowingly, carry emotional scars from childhood & life. This book outlines techniques for self-introspection to unlock our potential to fully love, feel compassion & be whole. "
