EMDR Protocol (With Interweave Guidance)

Cognitive interweaves are commonly used in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) to ‘unblock’ processing which has become ‘stuck’. This EMDR worksheet contains information about the standard protocol and helpful interweaves.

The EMDR Protocol (With Interweave Guidance) is an information-gathering and prompt sheet for the standard EMDR protocol. Treatment according to the EMDR model is three-pronged (addressing past, present, and future), and involes 8 phases. This prompt sheet addresses the assessment, desensitization, installation, body scan and closure phases (phases 3-7). The second page of the worksheet describes strategies for dealing with blocked processing, and the use of cognitive interweaves.
