Trust: Activating positive emotions in patients facing cancer or death

Description

Trust interventions focus on strengthening resilience and prevent clients from being flooded by uncontrollable ideas. They include working with imagination, metaphors, symbols and artwork and cognitions. Bilateral stimulation (BLS), an element of EMDR therapy is used for: 1) resource installation and anchoring, 2)reducing distress, 3) creating new chains of associations, 4) finding new perspectives. Trust interventions aim to: 1) bring the brain back from fear made into a a state of balance, 2) draw attention to concrete [new] experiences, 3) discover and strengthen subjective and objective resources in everyday life, 4) identify and, if required, change evaluation processes and attitudes.
