Default Re: Research Question: How do you know when an issue is done?

Hi, I have to make this quick as I have an early flight tomorrow to the EMDRIA conference, but here are some thoughts.
1) Officially, the targeted memory is clear once the SUD is 0 (on a 10 point scale) and the Validity of (desired) Cognition is 7, on a 7 point scale. And when there is a clear body scan (tho there are occasions to skip a body scan, specifically when one already knows there is more to the memory or the theme.
2) When the person can go into the future in imagination and run a clear video of the situation or behavior that used to be problematic, and see it without distraction or disturbance,
3) when the presenting symptoms that brought the person over the threshold are resolved (which may involve multiple targets)
4) when the family members say, "How the heck did you do that?"
