How to Use Resource Developement & Installation in EMDR Therapy



Resource Developement and Installation (RDI) is an effective resourcing technique in EMDR Therapy.


When to use it?


RDI is most helpful with client's who may have difficulty with affect tolerance. This is especially true in cases of complex trauma (complex post traumatic stress disorder).


What does it do?


RDI helps to promote stabilization, meaning that a client will learn how to increase their Window of Tolerance and decrease levels of dissociation. These are all necessary components of assessing readiness for reprocesing.
