Teresa Allen MFT
Licensed Marriage Family Therapist #39878
Robert Miller Ph.D. has developed a way to treat behavioral and substance addictions with EMDR. Using this protocol, the therapist helps to find the technique to identify the particularly meaningful positive feeling state associated with addictive behaviors and then works with EMDR to de-couple that state from the addictive behavior.
After finding the true positive feeling state, it’s possible to use EMDR to break apart the strength of the connection between the behavior and the positive feeling state. Then the therapist helps the client to find new, more adaptive ways of reaching that positive feeling state.
