Using “Flash” To Heal Traumatic Memories

About six years ago psychotherapist and EMDR trainer Philip Manfield developed a new trauma procedure that he calls, “The Flash Technique” (FT). This procedure can be easily learned and does not require a person to consciously engage with the traumatic memory. This allows a person to process traumatic memories without feeling distress.

This a Big Deal !  If you are a trained therapist, you can use “Flash” as an extra tool for your toolbox and teach it to your clients so they can use it between sessions.

I have researched FT on the web and found psychotherapist Thomas Zimmerman’s website. Thomas has his own unique way of simplifying the “Flash” process. I have successfully used the “Flash” procedure on myself and several clients.

Learn by watching Thomas’s YouTube videos below and investigate both Tom’s and Philip Manfield’s website for additional training on this modality.
