In this video I show how to use Attachment-Focused EMDR with a woman with a phobia that causes her panic and anxiety. In the beginning of the session, the client tearfully explained that she was triggered by seeing or hearing young mothers with small children when the mother or the child seemed to be in distress. The client was so triggered by this, that she would become overwhelmed with anxiety, panic and either attempt to intervene, or flee from the situation. She had often had to change subway cars in order to avoid the triggers, or run out of a supermarket. The problem was life-limiting and debilitating. In this session I used the bridging technique to find the childhood incidents linked to the triggers and then employed the modified protocol to reprocess two targets. We then processed the present trigger, and imagined future scenarios. At the end of the session the client reported feeling free from the anxiety that had plagued her and was no longer felt triggered. In the follow-up interview the next day, the client reported being symptom free riding the subway, unperturbed by crying children and their distraught mothers.
