Containers:  The use of cognitive interweaves with cognitions obtained at intake

Description

Collecting information properly at intake is one of the most important steps we can make in preparing to use EMDR with ourpatients. A thorough psychosocial history and interview help to highlight many possible targets and events by which an effective course of treatment may be created. During this preliminary phase, we are also looking for the patient's self described strengths, weaknesses, goals, expectations, motivations, support systems, and limitations. It is possible, given the aforementioned areas of interest, that abreactive material may arise before the completion of intake. If this happens, what steps may be taken?
