Présentation de l'éditeur

Psychotherapy that regularly yields liberating, lasting change was, in the last century, a futuristic vision, but it has now become reality, thanks to a convergence of remarkable advances in clinical knowledge and brain science. In Unlocking the Emotional Brain, authors Ecker, Ticic and Hulley equip readers to carry out focused, empathic therapy using the process found by researchers to induce memory reconsolidation, the recently discovered and only known process for actually unlocking emotional memory at the synaptic level. Emotional memory's tenacity is the familiar bane of therapists, and researchers have long believed that emotional memory forms indelible learning. Reconsolidation has overturned these views. It allows new learning to erase, not just suppress, the deep, unconscious, intensely problematic emotional learnings that form during childhood or in later tribulations and generate most of the symptoms that bring people to therapy. Readers will learn methods that precisely eliminate unwanted, ingrained emotional responses—whether moods, behaviors or thought patterns—causing no loss of ordinary narrative memory, while restoring clients' well-being. Numerous case examples show the versatile use of this process in AEDP, Coherence Therapy, EFT, EMDR and IPNB.

This book is ground breaking for Therapists. the research into the neurology of Implicit and Explicit memory reveals the Brain's rules for change no matter what techniques a therapist may use. It should be seriously taken into consideration by any therapist open to the meeting of psychology and neurology. There is a full review of this new book on Amazon.uk written by Graham Dawes. Excellent reading and exciting finds.

The Science of Emotional Change 9 octobre 2012
Par L. Daniels - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I've purchased 100s of books from Amazon.com over the years and while I frequently read the customer reviews prior to a purchase decision, I've never before had the inclination or urge to write a review myself. This is my first.

As a little background and context, in my 2nd stage in life, I made a career change and am currently a registered Marriage and Family Therapist Intern nearing completion of my experiential hours required to take the licensing exams. A Masters Degree and 3000+ hours of experience does not qualify me as an expert in psychotherapy though it does give me a lot of face time with people suffering from mild to severe psychological issues. The training and supervision process has also shown me that almost all therapists struggle with how best to help our clients and what specific tools, theoretical modalities or other techniques to use to ease this suffering. Along the way, therapists, including myself, adopt theories that fit with our own philosophical beliefs and life experiences. Personally, I've found myself relating best to the 3rd Wave Cognitive/Behavioral Therapies (ACT, DBT, etc.) though Interpersonal Neurobiology (INPB) and attachment theory have heavily informed the therapeutic path I currently follow. Brief Therapies haven't been my focus, but I've occasionally come across things that feel relevant and helpful.

A few years back, I came across Ecker and Hulley's book, Depth Oriented Brief Psychotherapy, and it fascinated and moved me to consider the most logical notion that psychological "symptoms" are functional. Other paths caught my attention, but I've occasionally come back to this book and was very interested when I saw that Ecker, Hulley, (and Ticic) had a new book coming out. I immediately pre-ordered it. When it arrived last week, I picked it up, started reading it, and had finished it within a few days. Very few psychological theory books get me past a few chapters, but I read "Unlocking the Emotional Brain" as if it were a favorite author's novel that could not be put down.

I can't speak to the science behind "memory reconsolidation," but having uttered the phrase that "we don't get an eraser for our past" more than a few times, I was more than a little excited to read that it might actually be possible to erase and re-write implicit learnings/memory from our past. Attachment related issues are so common in this field, yet most methods of dealing with them are aimed at the therapist/client having an almost "reparenting" experience to provide the secure attachment the client didn't get early in life. "Unlocking the Emotional Brain" provides a very specific, detailed methodology for actually elimiminating those implicit, generally unconscious learnings we pick up from our life experiences from an early age and onward, thus reducing the need for the symptoms that support those learnings. I assumed the book would be a Coherence Therapy manual (and it is to a certain extent), but I was gratified to see it written as a trans-theoretical model of how psychological change actually happens and how a variety of types of therapy achieve this change. I can think of no other book in my library of psychology books that is more clear on the why, what and how of working with clients. I've already started using this new knowledge with clients and it's already produced results where there was stuckness prior.

I believe this book should be read by all levels of therapists, but especially students, interns, and those still struggling to find their theoretical home base from which to ground their therapeutic work... Cannot recommend highly enough.

Transforming Psychotherapy 24 octobre 2012
Par Ken Benau, Ph.D. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Many books about psychotherapy are touted as "must reads", but this one is deservedly so for several reasons. First and foremost, Ecker, Ticic and Hulley draw a direct link between the neuroscience of memory reconsolidation-- which refers to research demonstrating that emotional memories or "limbic learnings" can, under certain precisely delineated conditions, be "erased" or updated-- and transformation in psychotherapy. While much brain research offers us interesting re-framings or metaphors for what happens in psychotherapy, few findings guide the actual practice of psychotherapy. Thanks to these authors, we now have relatively recent neuroscientific research (previously unknown to most clinicians) that actually points the way toward how psychotherapy, at its best, facilitates profound, "second order" change. That is, change that re-organizes a person's implicit "models" of self, other and relationship that lie at the heart (or "roots") of a whole host of problems which commonly present themselves to psychotherapists. Linking the brain with psychotherapy was a dream of Freud's over 100 years ago; this dream may be close to being realized in this book, a stunning feat unto itself.

As if that wasn't enough, Ecker et al offer several other wonderful contributions to the literature. These include: 1) Outlining the essential features of "therapeutic reconsolidation", that is the direct application of the "memory reconsolidation" research to profound psychotherapeutic change; 2) Demonstrating how therapeutic reconsolidation occurs in several transformative psychotherapies, not only in Coherence Therapy (CT), the constructivist-experiential approach developed by Ecker and Hulley, but also AEDP (Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy), EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), EFT (Emotion-Focused Therapy) and Interpersonal Neurobiology (IPNB). When so many therapy approaches tout their "brand's" superiority, it is remarkable that these authors are truly committed to integration, that is to discovering what makes deep change possible across distinct schools of therapy; 3) Reviewing the literature on attachment as applies to psychotherapy, and demonstrating how "reparative attachment" (i.e. repairing attachment wounds within the therapy relationship) is one but not the sole means by which attachment injuries can be transformed; and 4) Providing four clinical cases from other practitioners of Coherence Therapy (in addition to several other vignettes interspersed throughout the earlier discussion of clinical theory), rendered in some depth so that readers can further witness the therapeutic reconsolidation process from the perspective of Coherence Therapy.

The authors and their colleagues achieve all of this, using language that is clear, precise to the point of elegant, jargon-free, compelling and at times even inspiring. These authors seek to excite the reader, as well as bring together the usually separate fields of neuroscience and psychotherapy. For this reader, they succeed in ways few books can compare. If Ecker, Ticic and Hulley's new offering doesn't become a groundbreaking classic, it ought to! But don't take my word for it: discover for yourself the many gems that lay within.

Consistent recovery... 18 octobre 2012
Par Robert W. Gorman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Putting the final touches on over a quarter century of clinical practice backed up by rigorous thinking, Bruce Ecker, Robin Ticic and Laurel Hulley have written a break thru book that sets itself apart from other psychology books in 2 significant ways,
1. A new way of defining recovery,
2. An explanation of why other systems of therapy occasionally work.

Perhaps most important, this book is based on the analysis of actual clinical cases. No hypothetical theories explaining how our behaviors are the result of imaginary forces like Id, Ego, Superego, Parent, Adult, Child etc. This book presents real Individuals recovering from a wide variety of psychological sufferings.

'Recovery' is defined with 2 very different meanings.
First, it's permanent, not the typical works for a while, then we return back to our original problems as is true of counteractive change philosophies as happen so frequently in both clinical practice and certainly in our prison systems.

Second, it's totally predictable!
If you follow the 7 Simple steps presented, the sequence of experiences the brain requires to heal, you will create transformational change in every case, no hits or misses.

Other approaches:
This book explains how & when other systems work. EMDR, AEDP, EFT, IPNB are all given significant space with clear cases and comparisons. Chapter 5 puts the currently over-popular Attachment theory into a more reasonable perspective.

This most readable book is supplemented by downloadable sections like the Glossary, an excellent e-experience. It's so nice to download & print out the Glossary of Terms and have it next to you while reading the book...

While tying the theory to recent neurological research, gives it additional scientific validity, if you don't like terms like limbic, pre-frontal, sub-cortical and synapses don't worry they're all crammed into Chapter 2, which you can skip with no loss of overall meaning...

While the book's style is clearly focused towards psychotherapists, many others may also benefit from such a clear presentation of the common sense data of our daily lives...

Disappointed 31 décembre 2012
Par Dr Will - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I hate being the first negative reviewer, but I got this book after hearing Ecker in a psychology podcast. I was interested in memory reconsolidation after I read Archaeology of Mind (which he referenced in the interview) and some other pieces of Coherence Therapy. I decided to take the $30 plunge for the book despite some hesitation since I am a scientifically-minded psychologist that is a skeptic of many "experiential therapy" methods, and the price, since I paid $12 for the Kindle version of Archaeology, which is a modern masterpiece.

Basically, I think this book could be 1/3 of it's size, which is the biggest source of my disappointment. All major points in the text (the steps, the juxtaposition experience, the concept of emotional learning coherence, etc) are repeated countless times (easily 10+ each). Additionally, a huge portion of the book is dedicated to lengthy case examples that are nice at first, but again, it's just the same stuff over and over.

Furthermore, as someone that teaches theory and does a few lectures on common factors each term at a graduate level, I was turned off by the hubris of the authors, who state that the transformation process they promote is central to all lasting psychotherapeutic change. What they are describing is a TECHNIQUE (or set of techniques) in therapy that account for some percentage of therapeutic change, rather than a whole system that supplants the other identified common factors. Going beyond that was a stretch than any critical reader would pick up on.

All in all, the Coherence Therapy framework that depathologizes emotional reactions, and the general ideas about theory neutral steps to change are VERY interesting (bravo to that, seriously). But hinging everything on one therapy trick (the juxtaposition experience), despite it being a great trick, limits the book and the lasting influence of this approach, let alone the endless repetition in the text.

Memory: Solving Through Dissolving 16 décembre 2012
Par Graham Dawes - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This is a book for which I have been waiting a number of years now, perhaps before the authors even thought of writing it. At its core is Memory Reconsolidation, the process by which a memory can be changed.

The possibility of being able to change memories has an obvious relevance to psychotherapy. The beginnings of human research on this aspect of memory inspired many media misrepresentations, as in the film 'Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind', where you get to consign your ex to the it-never-happened dimension. This book tells you how it really works.

Our experience becomes memory, but it isn't just filed away on cerebral shelves, dusty and inactive. It informs what we do (and what we think and feel) in the present. Our memories hold all that we know about anything, whether that be about ourselves, about other people, about how things work in the world or about how to ride a bicycle. This is as true of things we are aware of as it is of things we aren't. We know that we know how to ride a bicycle, but we don't consciously know enough about how we do it to provide an accurate verbal description. Most 'psychological issues' derive from things we have learnt but aren't aware we have learnt. We might be aware of the experience from which we learnt, but still not be aware of what it was we learnt through that experience, nor of how that learning is affecting us today.

In that sense, memory is not our past but our present. You find yourself in a familiar context and you know what to do, even if you don't know you know what to do, and even if what you do isn't what you would intentionally prefer to be doing. Memory runs the show. From that perspective, memory is the platform on which psychotherapy operates. Consequently, it is useful to know how memory works - and this book brings you up to date.

Having said that, until recently, memory science had little to offer the project of personal change. The way memory was thought to work appeared to severely limit all efforts at change. The mainstream view was that when experience moved from short-term memory to long-term memory it was 'consolidated' through the mechanism of protein synthesis locking the synapses together. And that was pretty much that. 'Memories are forever' was the message.

That's not the most hopeful foundation for change when those memories hold the very patterns (of thought, feeling and behaviour) which trouble and perturb our present. Only within the last dozen years has neuroscience recognized the existence of a process which brings a memory out of the consolidated (fixed) state and renders it open to updating and to being reconsolidated - differently. This is the way out.

The book's authors call this the 'therapeutic reconsolidation process' (TRP). Their proposition is that it is this process which underlies all transformative change, whether inside or outside of therapy, and regardless of whether the process, itself, is recognized (as, of course, it wasn't by memory science until 2000). In other words, they claim that all therapies, all change methods, in so far as they occasionally accomplish transformative change (as opposed to helping people to cope better with their psychological problems) do so through the TRP process - regardless of the very different, even competing, theories and methods held by each of the psychotherapy schools. On that basis, they see theTRP as being a unifying foundation on which the whole psychotherapy field could be integrated.

There is some serendipity here (or synchronicity, if you are feeling mystical) in that two of the authors, Ecker and Hulley, when developing their Coherence Therapy model, almost twenty years ago, found much the same process, on the basis of clinical empiricism, as did neuroscientists on the basis of research experiment. The synergy of this convergence has, in this book, enabled the authors both to take the reader through the science underlying reconsolidation and to provide an explication of the process which is far better than any I came across in the scientific literature. A brilliant exposition.

At the heart of the book, though, is how the science can be applied to psychotherapy. Here the authors furnish a great deal of detail through case histories, both as a way of illustrating the process and, in part two of the book, by including four extensive cases in which colleagues report on their use of the therapeutic reconsolidation process. In all, the kinds of problems addressed in the book cover a wide range, including: low self-esteem, love obsession, chronic underachieving, stage fright (which turns out to be an example of PTSD), attachment issues, depression, panic attacks, withdrawing from emotional intimacy, guilt, compulsive drinking, compulsive eating and auditory hallucinations.

We also gain a substantial introduction to the methods of Coherence Therapy. As its name suggests, the concept of coherence is central, and it proves to be a very fruitful one. Essentially, it is that people's experience makes sense. It might not feel that way when, as an adult, we feel 'disempowered' by authority figures, or every romantic relationship seems to sluice down the same drain, or when any particular pattern of thought, feeling or behaviour feels out of our control. We cannot understand why we are plagued by such things. But, according to Coherence Therapy, the symptom of which we complain makes sense. Either it is an unconscious strategy to prevent something worse happening (or, more precisely, something we once, unconsciously, decided would be worse) or it is the unfortunate consequence (i.e., side-effect) of such a protective strategy. We make perfect sense; it's just that we don't know half of the sense that we make. That's why we can feel we (our thoughts, feelings or behaviour) are out of control. This coherence viewpoint constitutes a high-level reframing of the psychotherapy enterprise.

That would be more than enough, in any book. However, it should be mentioned that, for those in the psychotherapy field, the authors also bring conceptual clarity to two of its current debates: the attachment debate and the common factors debate. But that is icing on an already estimable cake.
