Emergency response protocol (ERP)
Victims of immediate trauma in Acute Stress Reaction often exhibit a high to extreme stress reaction and “silent terror.” ERP is a stabilization technique that utilizes rapid bilateral stimulation. It can stabilize victims of natural and man-made disaster and patients experiencing strong emotional reactions during all phases of EMDR treatment where the issue is lack of safety.
