Neuromodulation for EMDR: Processing

How do you proceed when you get stuck in the desensitization, installation, body scan, and/or closure phases of your EMDR session? Is there a way to reduce SUDs more rapidly, or move them down when they won’t budge?

In this course you will gain neuro-auricular modulation skills to quickly identify possible issues of potential blockage. You will then practically apply scientifically validated techniques to assess the relative relevance of the potential issues in order to most effectively support moving processing forward — all without the need for any pre-frontal cortex involvement by the client.
