EMDR and shame: A brief report
One of the most difficult issues in an EMDR session is when a patient is not able to "let go" and experience the process. There are a variety of reasons for this happening, one of which involves the shame patients sometimes feel in both reexperiencing the memories and of sharing them with us. Despite assurances that they do not have to share content, some patients have still reported difficulty in letting past material arise to be reprocessed because of fear of embarrassment and humiliation.
