Sample text

Few methods of therapy employ overt Category 3 activity. EMDR does with its eye movement and other repetitive sensory/motor activities. A method of treatment called Thought Field Therapy (TFT) may also use a Category 3 activity. In the primary treatment phase, TFT involves having the client (1) simply be aware of a target fear, a traumatic event, or even an urge to engage in an addictive behavior; (2) rate the strength of the accompanying emotion; and then (3) engage in a series of self-tapping, or other simple, selfgenerated, sensory, motor and/or verbal behaviors (counting or humming) specifically designed for the nature of the problem.

Reevaluation This phase involves the reassessment of the previous session’s target material at the beginning of the next session. 1. In the broad sense, cognition includes the picture (visual image). Here, as in Shapiro’s work and the traditions of cognitive therapies, the word cognitive is restricted to beliefs. ©2000 CRC Press LLC I believe that these eight phases of EMDR, as well as the activities of other methods of psychotherapy, can be conceptualized as containing up to four basic therapeutic activities.

I will elaborate later, but one may easily see key features of Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy, experiential therapies, client-centered, dynamic, and other approaches. Shapiro has noted, even emphasized, that the development of EMDR was not theoretically based. She discovered that rapid, repetitive eye movement had a powerful anxiety reduction effect (initially attributed to desensitization); then, based on experience, she developed a therapeutic approach to accompany this discovery. Developing a Theoretical Construct Only after Shapiro developed EMDR and noted its effects in her work and the work of others did she put forward a theoretical construct, accelerated information processing (AIP), to provide a framework for the consideration of EMDR, as well as other methods of treatment which might share some of EMDR’s properties.
