I am not sure exactly what you mean, but I will try to explain EMDR.

You do pick a distrubing memories(usually the worst one) and while you are doing the EMDR, it helps with the memory you pick, and it also can take some hidden forgotten or surpressed ones along with it. Or it can (not usually, but it did it for me) bring out a lot worse memory than what you were working on and kept it at the surface. (this is unusal though, out of 300 or so people my T used this on, it only happened to me and one other women. It sort of unlocks your brain and lets you process the memory that is frozen.

So for me allowing him to do EMDR again, with the possiblity of a worse memory coming out, scares me because I did dissociate when during the abuse. (even this is not as common as we think because most people remember bad things that happen to them. ) But with repeated abuse and torture, it can happen especially as a child.

I guess what I was talking about just letting it happen, was letting my T direct and control more of the session instead of me. I think I need to let myself trust him to do his job and let things fall where they do.

I don't know if this is what you are asking, LOL My brain is toast, I am studying for an Abnormal Pysch exam and trying to remember all about personality disorders, eating disorders, sucside, and mood disorder while going through my own problems too. LOL
