When you say, the client doesn't have the "positive resources available" ... is that like, having a piece of the "truth" .. or say -- I know "in MY head", that logically, in a perfect world -- an adult world, where I've learned right from wrong, etc., "I" know this rsponse I have about??? let's say - men in general - should not be as it is on a daily basis. I know in my head I should respond differently and I might even understand (after therapy for years) the more appropriate response and why I do react the way I do, but, during this EMDR session the child that's experiencing the incident doesn't have the knowledge of the adult? right? So how does one find this "positive resource" from within? I'm trying to determine the difference between getting caught in a flashback and having to work through it to get to the other side -- how that differs with EMDR and the looping -- which in essence sounds to me like we get caught in that moment of emotion and the T "pauses" or edits the flashback and tries to have a different outcome with some "positive" ending. My former T and I have worked a bit with that in some form or fashion - trying to tap into the positive, more grown up knowledge someone or "I" might have. She has "rescued" me from the flashback when it got to big and EMDR sounds a bit like that. Smoothing out the trauma with pauses and "positive feedback". I haven't finished reading the book. How does bio feedback and EMDR differ - briefly? I have used that in the past with other things. Is there anyone on this boad who is DID and has done EMDR that would talk to me and help settle some of my concerns and fears? Katieshouse
