Another technique for dealing with painful memories is the Floatback Technique
As you think of the negative cognition and the recent event, hold them both in mind. Where do you feel it in your body?
As you think of the recent incident and the negative cognition, notice the feelings in your body, and let your mind float back to childhood. What memory comes to mind when you felt that way? If something automatically comes to mind, then write it down in your Memory column along with your age and the SUDS level.
U&sing cue words, list the earliest memories and the ones with the highest SUDs level.
Place them in the Memory column opposite the recent event. For more help with traumatic memories go to http://www.mhurrelltherapy.com or call 310-802-4022.
