Publisher Comments:

A totally accessible user's guide from the creator of a scientifically proven form of psychotherapy that has successfully treated millions of people worldwide.

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 readers looking to achieve real change.

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 readers will learn to understand themselves, and why the people in their lives act the way they do. Most importantly, readers 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. Don't let yourself be run by unconscious and automatic reactions. Read the reviews below from award winners, researchers, academics and best selling authors to learn how to take control of your life.

This is one of my all time favourite books. If anyone has undergone some traumatic experiences and/or has undergone years of therapy but still is unable to break bad habits and choices that prevent you from reaching your true happiness, then this is the book for you. Even if you do not have trauma or have undergone therapy, this book can help you understand a loved one who continuously makes the wrong choices and is unable to overcome that last hill no matter what they or you try. Shapiro explains in easy layman's terms how our past affects our present, subconsciously, and what we can do to take control of the crutch holding us back to overcome it and finally learn to love ourselves independent of anyone. I have read this book twice and have recommended it to several friends as well.
