The two-hand interweave
The Two-Hand Interweave can be used to "front load" EMDR processing, as an interweave during processing, or on its own. In my experience, and the experience of my consultees and trainees, it helps about 95% of clients differentiate between murky feelings and choices. Clients like it. They often come in saying that they need to "two-hand" a decision. They report using the technique at home to make differentiations and choices. Borderline clients report "holding two feelings so that I could see that gray you're always talking about".
