thank you, sounds like something that can work:
"One proposal is that EDMR achieves this effect through impacting working memory
. The proposal is that the degradation in working memory causes a distancing effect, enabling the client to 'stand back' from the trauma. This enables the client to re-evaluate the trauma and their understanding of it, because they can re-experience it whilst not feeling overwhelmed by it. This effect may be achieved by bilateral stimulation. By having the patient perform a bilateral stimulation task while retrieving memories of trauma, the amount of information they can retrieve about the trauma is limited, and thus the resulting negative emotions are less intense
Bilateral stimulation may have other effects (see below).
Another proposal is that EMDR enables ‘dual attention’ (recalling the trauma whilst keeping ‘one foot in the present’ assisted by BLS)
, allowing the brain to access the dysfunctionally stored experience and stimulate the innate processing system
, allowing it to transform the information to an adaptive resolution."
Ok I just don't understand these parts I read and and that I put in bold and underlined.
-do they mean that EMDR impacts working the memory and as you try to work your way down to go back to remembering the negative/hurtful events, it will cause a 'distancing effect', with EMDR
-by having a patient perform a bilateral stimulation talk while retrieving memories of trauma, the amount of information they can retrieve about the trauma is limited
, in EMDR or in how your system works
-what do they mean that EMDR enables dual attention (recalling the trauma whilst "keeping 'one
foot in the present', do they mean like the above what they're talking about if they're saying again that EMDR bilateral stimulation causes a distancing effect?
-so 'innate processing system' means your inner body-functioning processing system
which will allow the traumatic memories to transform its information to an adaptive resolution
Thank you if anyone can help me define not really understanding these parts that I read,
