Eye Movements and Eye Placements in Psychotherapy: Fast Tools for Desensitization


SKU: LD - 113 Category:


Several contemporary and classic psychotherapy modalities utilize eye movements and eye placements to help clients desensitize to, and process, distressing memories and thoughts. These techniques, which are often straightforward and easy to implement, are nonetheless underutilized by therapists, as few trainings teach these strategies in isolation.

a). Name and practice at least two eye placement techniques that can facilitate desensitization and processing of distressing material.
