VIDEO: Troubleshooting EMDR Process

So Your Client’s Stuck in Memory Processing?

I think we’ve all had the experience—your client is memory processing and when you check in they are tentative or non-committal. Your physical sense tells you things are stalled out. What then? Well, your first step is to find out what your client is experiencing in the moment.

Delicate work. Rewarding Work.

The client’s memory may simply be overwhelming. But there is good news here. Your client’s reaction to the demands of EMDR memory processing is exactly the same as their reaction to other demanding life events. So this lack of progress during EMDR memory processing actually brings the issue your client needs to address right into the room. So you can work on it first-hand. I see this as a unique opportunity for healing.

That’s why I created this 15-minute EMDR mini-training video.  It will help you understand what may be happening when a client struggles with EMDR processing.  I share how to make the most of these opportunities.  Finally, I walk you through the steps, one by one, for getting things moving again when your client has been overwhelmed during EMDR memory processing.
