    1. I didn't read this entire book, only parts of it, especially the Introduction and the sections of EMDR and Creative Therapies. I was interested in it because of the editor Foa who was recently lauded in either Time or Newsweek and whose work I'm interested in learning more about, but this was edited by her and others and not much if anything, specifically about her.
