EMDR Books and Kits by Ana

When using EMDR therapy with children, two of the greatest challenges for clinicians are assisting children in identifying the negative and positive cognitions as well as obtaining the validity of the positive cognition (VoC).

Dark, Bad Day...Go Away is the first hard cover, illustrated book for children that motivates, prepares and guides children to use EMDR therapy. It is now available in Portuguese, Spanish and Japanese. 

This is the first book to provide a wide range of leading-edge, inventive, tangible, step-by-step strategies for clinicians working with children with severe dysregulation of the affective system using EMDR therapy and adjunct approaches. 

Comments on Ana's Presentations and Trainings

  • This was excellent! Terrific to have so many therapeutic techniques used together!! You are a terrific educator!!
  • I can’t think of a more inspirational workshop that I have recently attended. I have a degree in music and yet I seem to always need permission and or reminders to use my right brain with both adults and children. Thank you for an enchanting and incredibly educational afternoon. (I work mostly with adults)
  • Ana, you are a creative genius and an inspiration to innovate within & guided by the EMDR/AIP Model, which you present with such clarity & depth of understanding.
  • Thank you Ana for sharing your expertise and passion. Excellent theoretical foundation, useful video demonstrations, just a fantastic presentation and easy to understand. I will highly recommend this to other clinicians.
  • Remarkable presentation with tremendous skill, creativity and emotional power.
