I have found that by using mediation techniques with EMDR and a heuristic approach I am able to help people with Dissociative Identity Disorder come out of hiding, and reintegrate with their lost parts. The heuristic approach is so important for all therapists to use when working with their clients not just dissociative clients.
Heuristic questions are those that investigate and to engage the client’s creative process which brings about transformation. While teaching a Mind Body Psychology course I taught and demonstrated the use of heuristics and use it with my own clients . Mediation techniques, EMDR and a heuristic approach have been very helpful to my clients. It is described in my recently written book. www.jeanpollack.com
Has anyone else used this approach?
