DeTUR (Desensitize Triggers Urge Reprocessing)

Approved for 12 EMDRIA Credits

DeTUR (Desensitize Triggers Urge Reprocessing) is a new approach based on the Adaptive Information Processing of EMDR and is used along with EMDR as an integral part of a comprehensive plan for the treatment of addictions and dysfunctional behaviors.

This approach consists of a comprehensive treatment plan including history, assessment and diagnosis, detoxification (if necessary), medications, aligning internal and external support therapy and relapse prevention. By targeting the triggers that bring out the urge to use and then desensitize these urges, the individual gains in ego strength and learns to replace the dysfunctional behavior with a more positive and functional lifestyle. Individual therapy with EMDR assesses a client's specific needs and enables "reprocessing" of the core, underlying issues contributing to the presenting problems. Once the core traumatic issues have been reprocessed and dealt with, the triggers are no longer able to generate the anxiety that is attached to the urge to use and relapse becomes less likely.
