History taking: The time line
Client history taking is an important part of well-prepared clinicians' understanding of their clients. The Time Line Script (Hofmann, 2004) is based on a number of personal communications with other EMDR clinicians. The forms are a way of eliciting the material crucial to preparing for future work in EMDR. Topics discusses in this chapter include (1) time line script notes; (2) the Time Line Script; (3) best or positive and worse or negative memories; (4) positive and negative memory map; and (5) positive and negative memories.
