What is the Flash Technique?
The Flash Technique is an intervention for reducing the symptoms associated with traumatic or upsetting memories that can interfere with daily functioning.
Flash Technique allows the client to process these memories, often without feelings of distress, as the client does not need to focus directly on the upsetting memory.
How does Flash Technique work?
Like EMDR, Flash Technique utilizes bi-lateral stimulation to decrease symptoms related to trauma. It can be used in conjunction with EMDR or as a stand-alone therapy. Flash Technique is often effective in a much shorter time than other conventional therapies.
The therapist helps the client develop a target memory that is generating the symptoms. The client then engages in several short bilateral sets while focusing on a positive distraction.
What does the Flash Technique help?
The Flash Technique has been helpful in decreasing symptoms for many of the same issues as EMDR. These can include anxiety, panic attacks, sexual or physical abuse and many more.
None of the above symptoms or experiences fit you?
Do you experience distressing emotions that appear to you, and perhaps to others, to be excessive given the current situation? Do you tend to be highly reactive to certain triggers? Is there one or more dysfunctional beliefs that you believe about yourself that on an intellectual level you know are not true?
If so, you may be a good candidate for the Flash Technique intervention.
