CONTENTS

How often can we say therapy has been a categorical success? Welcome to our special issue on memory reconsolidation (MR)—a foundational process with the potential, if properly understood, to consistently bring about the kind of transformational change that we look for in the lives of clients. Graciously coediting this issue is Bruce Ecker, one of the foremost experts in applying techniques that fulfil the neurobiological requirements to achieve MR in clinical practice.

In fact all of the authors in this issue are experts in their respective fields, demonstrating the unifying nature of MR in such diverse therapies as the Alexander technique, energy psychology, neuro-linguistic programming, and progressive counting. Understanding the biological basis of our memory and how it can be modified is the key to effective therapeutic change, especially when emotional memories are driving unwanted symptoms.

In publishing this issue I would like to acknowledge Bruce Ecker for his decades of study, observation, and subsequent articulation of what is behind our clients’ pathology—or rather, their adaptive schemata that are no longer so adaptive—and what we, as therapists, can do about it in a definitive way. Bruce’s coherence therapy, co-developed with Laurel Hulley, is a game changer for therapists and clients everywhere, and I hope this issue will inspire you to discover more about the power of memory reconsolidation for your clients.
