Fractionate to Tolerate

“Fractionate to tolerate.” This is the phrase I came up with at the very end of a session I had some weeks ago with my complex DID (Dissociative Identity Disorder) client. I feel like I turned a corner with their treatment. I started applying EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) with much more detail (“fractionating”) to begin better building up this very fragile person’s tolerance to reprocess pain-charged memories– that and interweaving a lot of the IFS (Internal Family Systems)  method/lens too. Whew! And that was just my second client of the day. All the other sessions went well thereafter. I am loving the flexibility and creativity that’s occurring for me with these two therapy approaches.
