Transcript of "Energy Psychology: the Single Point Protocol"

  1. 1. The Successive Point Process Willem Lammers © 2001
  2. 2. <ul><li>Bahnhofstrasse 17, CH-7304 Maienfeld </li></ul><ul><li>Telefon 081 / 302 77 03 Fax 081 / 302 77 04 </li></ul><ul><li>info@iasag.ch www.iasag.ch </li></ul><ul><li>© 2000 </li></ul><ul><li>These handouts are only for the personal use of the participants of this IAS training seminar </li></ul><ul><li>and may not be copied or otherwise redistributed </li></ul>
  3. 3. Programme <ul><li>Presentation </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Psychotherapy and information processing </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>SPP Setup </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>SPP Diagnosis & Treatment </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>SPP Closure </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Demonstration </li></ul>
  4. 4. Psychotherapy and Information Processing <ul><li>Individuals normally process information to reach a state of adaptation </li></ul><ul><li>Information processing can be blocked </li></ul><ul><li>Psychotherapy helps clients in reprocessing dysfunctionally held information: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>maladaptive beliefs, thoughts, behaviour, emotions, sensations, painful intrusive images </li></ul></ul>
  5. 5. Psychotherapy and Information Processing <ul><li>Psychotherapy also helps clients to acquire and process new information to enhance adaptive functioning </li></ul><ul><li>Psychotherapy methods promote adaptive functioning in different ways </li></ul><ul><li>The MPC Single Point Process is one of these ways </li></ul>
  6. 6. Steps in Treatment <ul><li>Activities: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>1. Accessing of relevant information from the client </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>2. Introduction of new information to the client </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>3. Facilitation of processing of information </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>4. Inhibition of accessing information </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>(Lipke) </li></ul></ul>
  7. 7. The Relationship <ul><li>These activities take place within the context of a psychotherapeutic relationship, which </li></ul><ul><ul><li>establishes contact and reduces anxiety </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>recognises the positive intention of the client </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>frames the learning goal and allows learning </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>helps with the integration of learning experiences into the future </li></ul></ul>
  8. 8. 1. Accessing Existing Information <ul><li>Bringing to awareness of information already stored </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>from declarative memory systems (events, dates, facts) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>conditioned emotional responses </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>behaviour from non-declarative systems </li></ul></ul></ul>
  9. 9. Accessing Information <ul><li>Examples: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>a memory of a specific real event </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>a principle, a rule </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>a bodily sensation </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>an emotion </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>fantasies or beliefs – what could have happened? what is going to happen? </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Psychotherapy systems focus on different types of information </li></ul>
  10. 10. 2. Introduction of New Information <ul><li>Psychotherapists present new information or encourage the client to acquire new information themselves </li></ul><ul><li>All methods of therapy provide new information about the treatment they offer </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Dynamically oriented therapists may introduce information about the unconscious </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Behaviour therapists introduce information about reinforcement </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>MPT psychotherapists talk about energy systems </li></ul></ul>
  11. 11. 3. Facilitation of Information Processing <ul><li>Successful information processing between brain networks leads to adaptive transformation </li></ul><ul><li>Painful nonadaptive information can be reprocessed very rapidly, with the same speed that such maladaptive elements were acquired </li></ul><ul><li>This opinion is different from the therapeutic expectations of traditional models of psychotherapy </li></ul>
  12. 12. 3. Facilitation of Information Processing <ul><li>Category 3 activities do not contain or convey meaning in and of themselves </li></ul><ul><li>Meridian-based Psychotherapies and EMDR employ pure category 3 activity </li></ul><ul><li>(Lipke, Shapiro) </li></ul>
  13. 13. 4. Inhibition of Information Accessing <ul><li>The purpose of psychotherapy is to process, or reprocess information </li></ul><ul><li>The psychotherapist may also help the client to isolate information, to </li></ul><ul><ul><li>provide temporary relief of destructive distress, or </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>inhibit destructive behaviour </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Then information must be inhibited </li></ul>
  14. 14. 4. Inhibition of Information Accessing <ul><li>Examples: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Relaxation or selfhypnosis to close sessions in which traumatic events are not completely processed </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Anxiolytic and neuroleptic medication </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Telling a joke when a client comes out of trance </li></ul></ul>
  15. 15. Successive Point Process <ul><li>SPP </li></ul><ul><ul><li>is an extremely gentle type of process, which may go on for a longer time </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>is a synthesis of various meridian-based psychotherapy methods with EMDR/CB procedures, surrogate diagnosis and consecutive tapping of a number of single treatment points </li></ul></ul>
  16. 16. Successive Point Process <ul><li>SPP </li></ul><ul><ul><li>is recommended for issues not clearly defined, highly uncomfortable, or resulting from beliefs rather than emotions </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>is indicated in situations which would take many rounds of tapping </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>treats large numbers of aspects without explicitly defining them </li></ul></ul>
  17. 17. <ul><li>Neurologically, SPP matches the associative, network structure of the brain, jumping from issue to issue and finally dissolving the problem completely </li></ul>Successive Point Process
  18. 18. SPP <ul><li>The process is comparable to BSFF in the way issues show up and are treated </li></ul><ul><li>The client stays in full contact with the psychotherapist and is not confined to a narrow state of consciousness as in EMDR </li></ul>
  19. 19. SPP & Trauma <ul><li>In working with trauma the client doesn’t need to focus on the traumatic event itself </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The memory is just the point to depart from and return to after treatment </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>This prevents retraumatisation </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The deep, small steps give the client the opportunity to let go of traumatic or irrelevant material easily, without cognitive interference or psychological reversal </li></ul></ul>
  20. 20. Working with SPP <ul><li>You can apply </li></ul><ul><ul><li>for the surrogate diagnosis: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>the ideomotor response or the O-ring (see reference section 13/14) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>for the treatment: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>the classical 13 TFT points or only the eye brow, side of the eye and under the eye triad </li></ul></ul></ul>
  21. 21. Starting Procedure <ul><li>Starting procedure: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Identify an issue, memory, situation to work on </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Find a SUD score </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Find a negative cognition for the identity of the client in the situation (NC): </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>In this situation, I am (worthless, not important, stupid, etc...) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Find a positive cognition (PC): A cognition in which the NC is not present </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Rate the validity of the PC on a scale from 1 to 7 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Find a bodily symptom connected to the situation or the belief </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Make notes </li></ul></ul>
  22. 22. Measurement <ul><li>3 instruments to measure the severity of the problem: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>the SUDs </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>the value of the PC </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>the bodily symptom </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Treatment departs from the bodily symptom </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The PC and the SUD scores are used to evaluate the process </li></ul></ul>
  23. 23. Bladder-2 Gall Bladder-1 Stomach-1
  24. 24. Diagnosis & Treatment 1 <ul><li>Procedure: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Ask the client to concentrate on the body while thinking of the issue </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Find a key word or a symbol that captures the essence of the aspect that comes up </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Diagnose a single treatment point by surrogate diagnosis or MT </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Let the person tap/TaB the point, as long as she feels like it </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>While the client is tapping, tap on yourself also </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>There is no limit to the duration of the tapping </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Some points take minutes: Your body knows how long it will need to tap </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Let the client hold the point until she feels a shift </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Let the client relax and take a deep breath, wait 10 seconds </li></ul></ul>
  25. 25. Diagnosis & Treatment 2 <ul><li>Ask what comes up </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Every experience, thought, emotion, belief or sensation is a valid new step in the process </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Don't discuss new aspects, just find a name to catch its essence </li></ul></ul>
  26. 26. Treatment Continued <ul><li>Go through steps 1 – 7 again and again, until no new aspects show up anymore </li></ul><ul><li>When nothing new happens, go through one or more rounds with the last aspect and treatment point </li></ul>
  27. 27. If Client Reports no Change <ul><li>If client reports no change: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Repeat the treatment with the same point and key word </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Ask client to observe reactions more precisely and find another key word </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Find another point </li></ul></ul>
  28. 28. Evaluation <ul><li>Procedure: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Go back to the original situation or event </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Have the client estimate the SUDs and the PC again </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>If the SUDs are higher than a 2 or 3 and the validity of the PC is under 6 or 7, go into a next series of dxtx steps </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Stop processing when the VC = 6 or 7 and the SUDs are down to a level the client feels comfortable with </li></ul></ul>
  29. 29. Closure <ul><li>Tap on Central Vessel, Ren-17 </li></ul><ul><li>While tapping say: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>„ I forgive X, he didn’t have a choice“ </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>„ I forgive myself, I did the best I could“ </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Future-pace to allow for integration into the daily life of the client </li></ul><ul><li>Congratulate your client with the result </li></ul>
