This interview with Dr. Anabel Gonzalez explores emotions’ role in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) treatment. We discuss how a client’s ability to regulate emotions has a major impact on the course of treatment. Using clinical examples, we show that emotion regulation is much more complex than a simple dichotomy (“too much” / “too little” emotions). The clients who present the greatest challenges to us are those who do not connect with their feelings or have difficulty letting them “flow.”
