Description

EMDR, a therapy primarily known for the treatment of trauma, can root out destructive cultural or generational intojects. It can target the cultural transmission of racism, sexism, class expectations, and the increasingly narrow parameters of acceptable appearance, interests, and personality. It can also transform the effects of the generational transmission of destructive beliefs, identities, and emotional states. When exploring internalized race, gender, cultural, ethnic, or class-based introjects the author uses the Standard Protocol, often in conjunction with two other techniques, to explore and clear the split between a client's self and negative or positive cultural expectations.
