EMDR Books and Kits by Ana

This book is especially designed for mental health professionals trained in EMDR therapy to use with the children they treat. This book has been written to help children with histories of trauma and adversity better understand why they think, feel, and somatically respond to the present the way they do. 

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. 

Comments on Ana's Presentations and Trainings

  • 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.
  • 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 is so knowledgeable about EMDR and it’s effectiveness with children and she is so willing to share her insights and knowledge.
  • Remarkable presentation with tremendous skill, creativity and emotional power.
  • 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.
