Example text

For some, closing their eyes is so uncomfortable and disconcerting that they are unable to even try the practice in the first place. The main point is to get the client practicing—eyes open or closed. Additionally, asking clients to practice between sessions is helpful. However, if for any reason, a client begins to dissociate or if they find themselves drifting into trauma memories and getting stuck there, rather than dispassionately observing the memories as they pass, then ask the client to reorient with an eyes-open meditation where they are focused on the sights, sensations, and sounds of the moment.

I can’t remember exactly what we talked about. Therapist:  We talked about all those things that haven’t worked in your life in terms of trying to fix the problem of negative emotions and thoughts, the problem of struggling with PTSD. Client: Oh. Therapist: So let’s back up a little. Let’s revisit last week and tie it into what might be happening for you right now. Sound okay? Client: Sure. Therapist: W  e built a list of the things that you struggle with … memories, anxiety, disconnection, … and then we explored all the avenues you have tried to make the memories stop, to get rid of the anxiety and reconnect.
