Flash is a brief psychological intervention developed as a brief precursor to Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) for individuals who have experienced a disturbing event. Similarly to EMDR, clients recall the disturbing memory whilst focusing on a safe place and simultaneously performing small eye movements.
Flash is a one-off session lasting around 60-minutes within an online group setting. It is a technique to help our brains process a disturbance that you may be struggling with or a troubling event in the recent or more distant past which is getting in the way of you being able to function as you might otherwise, at work or at home.
When we experience disturbing events, we might ruminate, lose sleep, feel anxious etc. and this technique helps the brain to process it, helping to reduce these symptoms. We all have disturbances, maybe daily to some degree, and this is a technique from which every one of us can benefit.
Flash typically can be completed in a single 1-hour session. You will not need to share anything about the recent event you may bring to work on or the effects this is having on you with other group members. You only need to share limited information (levels of disturbance) with the facilitators. The technique does not involve focusing on the disturbing event, so it should not activate distress during the session.
