Don't go with that!
One of the beauties of EMDR is that, in most cases, clients can simply begin each set of eye movements by focusing on their associations from the previous set. The therapist simply says, "Go with that." This workshop will identify clients for whom "Go with that" will probably not work, clients who use avoidance or dissociation to defend against painful affect or who associate loosely and cause targets to "pancake." We will use video and transcripts to illustrate a variety of interventions and techniques to handle these more challenging clients and situations.
