Developed in mid- 2016, this technique is used
during the preparation phase of EMDR, and allows clients to reduce
the disturbance associated with extremely painful memories without
actually feeling the pain. Defenses that are normally obstacles to
processing are not activated because the process is not
threatening or painful. Clients who dissociate have less need to
dissociate and those who are afraid of the intensity of their
memories can process without being afraid. Dramatic reductions in
disturbance happen often in 5 to ten minutes. And, for clinicians,
this technique is easy to learn and use.
A paper describing four cases utilizing flash has been published in the November 2017 issue of the Journal of EMDR Practice and Research.
presented by Philip Manfield, Ph.D. and Lewis Engel, Ph.D.

This is an opportunity to improve your skills at doing the flash technique. Dr. Lewis Engel and I began teaching flash in October of 2017, and we are excited about how the technique has evolved and improved over that time. If you took one of our first webinars, we hope you have been pleasantly surprised at what you have been able to accomplish with it. But we also understand that you have probably run into some problems using the flash technique. Now that you have had experience working with it, we hope you can share the problems with us, and we hope to be able to offer some satisfying solutions. You will also be happy to know that Flash has become easier to use and results are now generally achieved more rapidly. We look forward to bringing you up to speed on these advances.
We have had many requests for a live workshop by therapists who prefer face-to-face over internet delivery of content and who missed the live flash workshop last year. This intensive six-hour workshop is designed to provide the basic skills that will allow attendees to immediately begin using the Flash Technique in their own clinical practices. It is identical to the webinar that has been used to train over 3500 flash practitioners over the past year, but during the practicum, you will have the opportunity to provide and receive a flash session face-to-face with another participant.
