EP 35 - Should I be able to fix everything for a client in an EMDR Intensive?


Welcome back for another episode of the Future Template Parent Podcast! I am your host, Carolyn Solo, LCSW, and this week we discuss a question that I have heard numerous times.


So what is that question? The question is - what if my client expects me to fix everything about their life? More importantly, what if  YOU expect YOURSELF to fix everything, have them finish all their therapy forever, all the presenting issues that they'll ever, ever have… in a single EMDR intensive?


Short answer - NO. But - listen to the full episode for all of the details.


If you're a new EMDR therapist concerned with client expectations about intensives, tune in to this episode now as we discuss


Topics covered:

  • Client and therapist expectations of Intensives
  • Different approaches to intensives
  • The complexity and nuance of intensive EMDR
  • Managing client expectations and, most importantly, your expectations of yourself as a therapist
