Trouble Finding an Individual Memory in EMDR Therapy when Trauma was Daily: A Topographic Approach

Using age, space, and topography to find an individual representative memory related to a presenting issue or a theme.

• Identify a negative cognition.
• What age do we need to work related to that theme and negative cognition?
• Home, school, or community?
• Where (what room) in that space do we need to work?
• Put yourself in that space at that age and related to that theme and negative cognition, what memory comes?
• Target that in EMDR Therapy.
