Dr. Louise Maxfield was honored in EMDRIA’s Go With That magazine Volume 26 Issue 3. Dr. Maxfield, an EMDRIA Certified Therapist and Approved Consultant, retired recently from serving as the editor for the Journal of EMDR Practice and Research for 15 years. Throughout her illustrious career, Dr. Maxfield made numerous contributions as a researcher, author, teacher, therapist, and advocate for EMDR therapy. In the article below she says:
“The EMDR community has been my ‘home’ for almost 30 years, and I will deeply miss all our camaraderie, connections, and collaborations. I have been blessed with opportunities to disseminate information about EMDR, to foster research and innovations, to contribute to our understanding of EMDR’s mechanisms and is efficacy, and to encourage humanitarian efforts. Now it is time for me to pass on the torch, and I have great confidence that others will also seize the opportunities that come to them to carry on this wonderful work. I am excited as I think about the future of EMDR therapy and about the many thousands of therapists working to bring healing, researchers seeking to advance knowledge, trainers providing wisdom, and authors writing powerful articles – all over the world.” – Dr. Maxfield
