Easy attachment resourcing for EMDR
Easy Attachment Resourcing for EMDR presents several user-friendly ego-state-based resources, fitted to the phases and prongs, for enhancing attachment skills, self-soothing, and maintaining dual attention during processing. Preparation phases: find and install skill-based parenting, protecting, or coping ego states, which can be “front-loaded” just before the Assessment phase begins. Safe Places will contain a nurturing and protective attachment-object. The Two-Hand Interweave “front-loads” or finds targets or attaches a dissociated child part to a nurturing/protective adult part. If dual-attention is lost during Desensitization, participants will know to interweave/reinstall an Adult nurturing/protective part in order to keep clients present and processing.
