EMDR is an evidence-based treatment that helps our clients feel better in a shorter period of time.
But before we begin the work of trauma processing, it’s essential to make sure clients are equipped with skills to handle distress, discomfort, and any other difficult emotions that may arise during the phases of treatment.
That’s why Megan McQuary, LCSW, ACADC, CCTP-II, EMDR-C, has created this printable guide
with some of her favorite state change exercises.
Practice these exercises with your clients before diving deep into trauma processing. Keep in mind that while these skills may seem simple, they can be difficult to master for those who are hyperaroused or dysregulated. Allow your client to guide the pace of treatment, and make sure they’re confident in their ability to use these state change exercises before proceeding forward. Download your free copy today!
