Emotional Healing at Warp Speed provides a popular introduction to a miraculous new psychotherapeutic method called EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). In these pages psychotherapist David Grand, Ph.D., describes his own first encounter with EMDR, then recounts the dramatic results of bringing this new therapy into the lives of his patients. By alternately stimulating the left and right sides of the brain to clear psychological blocks and resolve trauma, EMDR helped Grand’s patients put the pieces of their emotionally shattered lives back together with a speed that exceeded his wildest dreams.
Grand’s use of EMDR has helped people from all walks of life, from railroad engineers reliving the nightmare of death on the tracks to mothers of children killed on the mean streets of America’s inner cities, from bomb victims in Belfast and Oklahoma City to Arabs and Israelis traumatized by decades of hatred and violence. His account of this work inspires and touches the reader’s heart as it reveals the healing power of a process that works as swiftly as thought itself.
Grand takes EMDR–developed by Francine Shapiro, M.D., only fourteen years ago–far beyond its initial use in healing trauma. In addition to turbo- charging breakthroughs in psychotherapy, Grand uses EMDR to clear away blocks to performance and creativity. Remarkable examples show athletes, actors, musicians, and artists improving their performance, and a self-use chapter describes practical ways readers can apply this remarkable method to resolve fear of public speaking, enhance creativity, enjoy deeper, more restful sleep, resolve stress and anxiety, and much more.

“Brain-imaging studies in the Amen Clinics have shown that EDMR can actually heal brain function after trauma. I highly recommend Dr. David Grand’s new book on this subject. Unlike most books on psychology, it is beautifully and passionately written and easy to read. All therapists and anyone who has suffered emotional trauma (and those who love them) should read this book.”
-- Daniel G. Amen, M.D., psychiatrist and author of Change Your Brain, Change Your Life
“In this eloquent book, David Grand masterfully demonstrates both the technique and the theory of one of the most powerful new tools for psychotherapeutic treatment. While previous books on EMDR have tended to focus on pragmatics, Grand offers hope for those who suffer unremitting psychic pain or who are undergoing agonizingly slow recovery from major trauma. His dazzling stories of patient recovery are exciting to read. This book lies at the cutting edge of modern treatment for the mind.”
-- Andrew Solomon, author of Noonday Demon: An Atlas of Depression and New York Times contributing writer
“Dr. David Grand helps people heal from trauma and clear away negative patterns using simple steps to focus, clarify their perceptions, identify, and more important, release creative blocks. This book provides valuable insights into a powerful new tool for helping people to cut through mental clutter and learn to listen to their own inner wisdom.”
-- Johnnie L. Cochran, Jr., coauthor of Journey to Justice
“Dr. Grand’s successful use of the remarkable new technique, EMDR, to help athletes, actors, and musicians enhance performance and creativity extends the boundaries of performing art. I highly recommend it.”
-- Terrie Williams, president of the Terrie Williams Agency and author of The Personal Touch and Stay Strong: Simple Life Lessons for Teens
“I offered Dr. David Grand’s techniques to my voice, dialect, and acting students with astounding results. I believe ‘The Grand System’ will someday be as celebrated in the field of performance theory as ‘The Stanislavski System’ is today.”
-- Linda Brennan, chair, Voice & Speech Department, the American Academy of Dramatic Arts
