Memory
traces are distributed
throughout the sensory
system and the brain is like
a vast net of billions of cells
that signal each other to
make memories, create
behavior, feel
emotions.
When
threatening
information, real or
perceived, enters the
brain, time stops and we
know traumatic past
events are held like
the day they
occurred.
In
memory a
hot stove is always
hot, a car accident con-
tinues to exist in sounds,
smells, and sensations or a
bomb explosion is always
what it was the day it
happened.
Cruel
words, trau-
matic health infor-
mation and and social-
psychological wounds
can be stored fully
charged for many
years.
Traditional
talk therapy
makes good gains
at opening these
pathways and inserting
current and more
accurate
information.
But
sometimes,
another way is
necessary to
discharge them
and bring them into
present time.
In
my practice,
these new therapies
emerging from neuro-
biology: EMDR (Eye Movement
Desensitization and Reprocess-
ing) and Brainspotting are
proving very effective in
decreasing, discharging and/
or ‘disappearing’ long
held problems.
