About this audiobook

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.

    Great information to help someone understand the EMDR process. Read/Listen to this book before attending EMDR training.

    way too longwinded, horrible index and TOC, none of the techniques r elaborated in any detail, and contains AT MOST one technique that is unique to the system of EMDR. has little more therapeutic value than a generic commercial self-help book

    At first, I liked this book. I went into it open-minded and ready to learn about dealing with my past. But as the book progressed, EMDR seemed more and more pseudo-scientific. My attitude shifted from treatment I would seek out for myself or loved ones to something to avoid.

    It opened me up to compassion and understanding.
    Yes.
    It makes me want to hug the world to help heal the world
