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.
