Safe place imagery: Handling intrusive thoughts and feelings

Description

This paper will expand on the EMDR protocol of Safe Place Imagery (SPI) making it useful to a wider range of clients. Clients with overt and covert trauma histories will frequently experience traumatic intrusions in to the Safe Place or not be able to find one. Knowledge of trance both explains these phenomena and informs the process of teaching these clients to block out intrusions. Use of SPI with clients with complex ego states and Dissociative Disorders will also be discussed.
