> Yes, he does make sense. An interview is part of the protocol and helps establish what will be worked on

This person gave me the feeling that he felt EMDR might not be the choice of tx after the interview--only one possibility. He said that EMDR is effective but not as much a panacea as previously thought. It is only one of many techniques used in his cog/beh practice. I understand the need for an interview. But I don't think he meant an interview for EMDR--but rather an interview to decide which technique should be used.

, usually a specific relxation technique is given to prepare the person and also to provide an "escape" if the memory gets too stressful during the session

What types of relaxation tech's? These are hard for me.

Had one more call from a social worker who uses EMDR. She will be on vaction till mid Jan and said she has a pretty full schedule but I could call after mid Jan to ask any questions.

CAn you give me a comment on the first paragraph? I think what he's telling me is not to search for EMDR tx, but to find a therapist who can help me move in the direction I want--and if they feel EMDR is the way to go, then they will provide it--if not they will use something else. Is this good or should I find someone willing to provide EMDR anyway?
