An efficient way of targeting traumatic material
Besides the correct application of the basic EMDR protocol, one of the most important factors involving the treatment of trauma related conditions, is the way the traumatic material is targeted. For example, if clients have trouble processing, this could be due to a lack of focus which prevents the client from successfully tapping into his memory network. It’s our experience that, to adequately tap into the memory network, it is most useful to use a somewhat different strategy for ‘going back to target’ than which is described as part of the standard EMDR procedure. We would recommend the following procedure (see Box I).
