Every Moment of a Fall : A memoir of recovery through EMDR therapy (Unabridged) (CD/Spoken Word) (Carol
About this item
Author Carol E. Miller turned to EMDR therapy after laboring for decades under the devastating impression that she had been at fault for the fatal crash of a private plane—in which she was a passenger—at age sixteen that resulted in the death of her stepsister and the near deaths of her parents. Her feeling of responsibility for this horrific event was made even harder to bear when her stepfather told her in front of the entire family that he wished it had been she, and not his daughter, who had perished in the crash.EMDR Therapy—or Eye Movement Densitization and Reprocessing Therapy as it is clinically known—involves the tracking of a patient’s eye movements as he or she recalls a traumatic event. Through the prompting of a therapist over an extended period of time, the course of those memories are rearranged to bring about a clearer understanding of the reality surrounding that particular moment, in turn absolving crippling feelings of guilt and shame.Every Moment of a Fall is both a brave and revealing memoir of a tragedy that altered the path to the author’s adulthood, as well as a fascinating, vividly narrated exploration of this unique yet little-understood therapy process that helped bring about her recovery.
