An accessible user's guide to overcoming trauma from the creator of a scientifically proven form of psychotherapy that has successfully treated millions of people worldwide. Whether we’ve experienced small setbacks or major traumas, we are all influenced by our memories and by experiences we may not remember or fully understand. Getting Past Your Past offers practical techniques that demystify the human condition and empower readers looking to take charge of their lives. Shapiro, the creator of EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), explains how our personalities develop and why we become trapped into feeling, believing and acting in ways that don't serve us. Through detailed examples and exercises readers will learn to understand themselves, and why the people in their lives act the way they do. Most importantly, readers will also learn techniques to improve their relationships, break through emotional barriers, overcome limitations, and excel in ways taught to Olympic athletes, successful executives,and performers. An easy conversational style, humor, and fascinating real life stories make it simple to understand the brain science, why we get stuck in various ways and how to achieve real change.
Often Christians feel saved from the ultimate penalty for their sins, but not from the persistent pain of regret. The long-lasting consequences of bad decisions leave many feeling perpetually out of God's will and unable to move forward into freedom and productivity. Getting Past Your Past is the antidote to the kind of regret that can stall us spiritually and bind us up in emotional pain. Susan Wilkinson lights a clear path out of this prison with six steps, including understanding and truly embracing grace; learning to forego secrets and live authentically; and grieving old dreams and dreaming new ones. This wise, heartfelt book offers strong spiritual and emotional resolution of regret by focusing on the sovereignty and unmerited kindness of God, who alone can restore the peace we've sometimes lost.

Do memories of your past haunt you? Is there help for people who suffer because of their own past? Most people who suffer from bad memories want them to disappear. On the other hand, some want to deny the problem and ?just forget the past.? Robert D. Jones shows that God provides a solution to the haunting problem of nagging bad memories. What is God's answer? If you belong to Jesus, God does have something better for you, Jones writes. God does not want to remove your memories; he want to transform them into something good. Your bad memories of past sins-even the worst ones-can be opportunities for life-changing growth. You do not need to avoid, run from, or get rid of your past. Jones points out that painful thoughts may still intrude, but you need not escape them. God is bigger than your past.
This book is intended for anyone who has been through any kind of tragedy in your life and are continually victimizing yourself because of that tragedy. My desire is for you to read my book and understand that if I could have gone through everything I've been through in my life and still remain sane, so can you. I am a survivor and I want you to realize that you are too. Writing this book was very therapeutic for me; it was a way for me to release it. I hope reading it becomes very therapeutic for you as well. There is a bit of comedy and sarcasm in it that will make you laugh. However, I do use some adult language, so if you have a teenager whose perhaps been raped that you want to read it, please be sure you supervise them. I am who I am and don't pretend to be anyone else. Enjoy!
