The utilization of muscle testing as an ideomotor signal: How to bypass dissociation, ratify EMDR protocols and assess covert ego states

Description

The Eve Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing procedure requires the development of a protocol comprised of the patient’s inner experiences in the forms of images, emotions, sensations, cognitions and Likert scale type ratings. Some individuals are dissociated from their inner experiences to a degree which makes it difficult for them to soundly identify and consciously report these inner experiences. Applied Kinesiology muscle testing responses, which are conceptualized as ideomotor signals, are utilized to assess and ratify data used in developing EMDR protocols. Muscle tests are also effective for deciphering covert ego states and assessing their unique responses. Demonstrations and experiential practice in dyads. Upon completing this workshop, the participant should be able to: 1. Use muscle testing as an ideomotor signal; 2. Use muscle testing to develop and ratify EMDR protocols; and 3. Use muscle testing to assess and access covert ego states.
