Accentuates and strengthens the client’s desired positive belief • PC may have evolved into an even more adaptive statement now that the disturbance has been processed to 0 SUD in Phase 4: Desensitization
Allows AIP to strengthen access and connections to adaptive memory networks
Allows associations with the desired positive belief to generalize to other memory networks
Phase 5 Processing
When you pull up the original experience (target), does [repeat the PC] still fit, or is there something that’s even better now? [pause for response]
Think about the original experience and the words [repeat the current PC]…From 1, COMPLETELY false, to 7, TOTALLY true, how true do they FEEL now?
Focus on the original experience (target) and the words [repeat the current PC] and follow the back-and-forth
Continue long and fast sets of DAS/BLS (reprocessing speed) as long as the client reports changes until the PC is fully developed / installed (VoC = 7)
Changes may include
Strengthening and generalization of the PC
For clients who are well resourced, you may check the VoC after each set
For clients who are poorly resourced, time permitting, rather than interrupting the process, continue sets until the gains / generalizations plateau, then check the VoC
A level of disturbance may emerge as AIP continues to access memory elements
Blocking belief or feeder memory may be emerging
Ask questions to identify the block
What’s keeping this from being a 7?
What would it mean if it were a 7?
What would it take for it to be a 7?
What’s the danger of it being a 7?
What would you lose if it were a 7?
What would change if this were a 7?
The block or feeder may need to be tagged and set aside for separate processing at a later time
The disturbance may be appropriate for the situation
