A Step-by- Step Guide to Activating Your Healing Resources Through Bilateral Stimulation
by Dr. Laurel Parnell, Ph.D.
Tapping In is a remarkable course taught by an expert who shares her knowledge without reservation. The
process uses bilateral stimulation - that is, alternately stimulating each side of the brain. This is the
foundation of a psychotherapy treatment called Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, or EMDR. The use
of EMDR to address and resolve emotion associated with memories of traumatic experiences was developed by
Francine Shapiro in 1989. EMDR is now used by thousands of therapists around the world as part of comprehensive
treatment for patients suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
The original treatment involving eye movement soon evolved into other forms of bilateral stimulation, most of
which have proven to be every bit as effective as EMDR. In this audio course, Dr. Laurel Parnell deftly teaches
listeners how to use simple tapping movements to tap in to emotional resources we already possess, as
well as to tap in reconditioned responses to stressful encounters.
A clinical psychologist herself, Parnell also teaches international workshops and has authored several books
about the use of EMDR in treatment. She brings more than theory and research to this course, however, her
clients’ experiences with bilateral stimulation as well as her own use of the technique allow her to speak
confidently and with intimate knowledge about the validity of the method. In fact, she shares a story of anxiety
she encountered while recording the audio and how she used bilateral stimulation to recover her emotional
equilibrium within minutes.
There are no exotic props or three-dollar words involved here, just a simple, easily-learned technique that
almost anyone can master. Parnell explains clearly how and why the technique works. She offers options so that
everyone can adapt the system to their own needs and comfort levels. Listeners are led step-by-step through
exercises, and Dr. Parnell proactively addresses almost any question one might have. In just over 2 hours, this
course successfully teaches us how to reduce stress, relieve anxiety, and develop a greater and more consistent
level of contentment.
