Psychotherapy and Information Processing Individuals normally process information to reach a state of adaptation Information processing can be blocked Psychotherapy helps clients in reprocessing dysfunctionally held information: maladaptive beliefs, thoughts, behaviour, emotions, sensations, painful intrusive images

Information processing can be blocked

Psychotherapy helps clients in reprocessing dysfunctionally held information:

maladaptive beliefs, thoughts, behaviour, emotions, sensations, painful intrusive images

Psychotherapy and Information Processing Psychotherapy also helps clients to acquire and process new information to enhance adaptive functioning Psychotherapy methods promote adaptive functioning in different ways The MPC Single Point Process is one of these ways

The MPC Single Point Process is one of these ways

Steps in Treatment Activities: 1. Accessing of relevant information from the client 2. Introduction of new information to the client 3. Facilitation of processing of information 4. Inhibition of accessing information (Lipke)

Activities:

1. Accessing of relevant information from the client

2. Introduction of new information to the client

3. Facilitation of processing of information

4. Inhibition of accessing information

(Lipke)

The Relationship These activities take place within the context of a psychotherapeutic relationship, which establishes contact and reduces anxiety recognises the positive intention of the client frames the learning goal and allows learning helps with the integration of learning experiences into the future

1. Accessing Existing Information Bringing to awareness of information already stored from declarative memory systems (events, dates, facts) conditioned emotional responses behaviour from non-declarative systems

Bringing to awareness of information already stored

from declarative memory systems (events, dates, facts)

conditioned emotional responses

behaviour from non-declarative systems

Accessing Information Examples: a memory of a specific real event a principle, a rule a bodily sensation an emotion fantasies or beliefs – what could have happened? what is going to happen? Psychotherapy systems focus on different types of information

Examples:

a memory of a specific real event

a principle, a rule

a bodily sensation

an emotion

fantasies or beliefs – what could have happened? what is going to happen?

Psychotherapy systems focus on different types of information

2. Introduction of New Information Psychotherapists present new information or encourage the client to acquire new information themselves All methods of therapy provide new information about the treatment they offer Dynamically oriented therapists may introduce information about the unconscious Behaviour therapists introduce information about reinforcement MPT psychotherapists talk about energy systems

All methods of therapy provide new information about the treatment they offer

Dynamically oriented therapists may introduce information about the unconscious

Behaviour therapists introduce information about reinforcement

MPT psychotherapists talk about energy systems

3. Facilitation of Information Processing Successful information processing between brain networks leads to adaptive transformation Painful nonadaptive information can be reprocessed very rapidly, with the same speed that such maladaptive elements were acquired This opinion is different from the therapeutic expectations of traditional models of psychotherapy

3. Facilitation of Information Processing Category 3 activities do not contain or convey meaning in and of themselves Meridian-based Psychotherapies and EMDR employ pure category 3 activity (Lipke, Shapiro)

4. Inhibition of Information Accessing The purpose of psychotherapy is to process, or reprocess information The psychotherapist may also help the client to isolate information, to provide temporary relief of destructive distress, or inhibit destructive behaviour Then information must be inhibited

Successive Point Process SPP is an extremely gentle type of process, which may go on for a longer time is a synthesis of various meridian-based psychotherapy methods with EMDR/CB procedures, surrogate diagnosis and consecutive tapping of a number of single treatment points

Neurologically, SPP matches the associative, network structure of the brain, jumping from issue to issue and finally dissolving the problem completely Successive Point Process

Neurologically, SPP matches the associative, network structure of the brain, jumping from issue to issue and finally dissolving the problem completely

SPP The process is comparable to BSFF in the way issues show up and are treated The client stays in full contact with the psychotherapist and is not confined to a narrow state of consciousness as in EMDR

SPP & Trauma In working with trauma the client doesn’t need to focus on the traumatic event itself The memory is just the point to depart from and return to after treatment This prevents retraumatisation The deep, small steps give the client the opportunity to let go of traumatic or irrelevant material easily, without cognitive interference or psychological reversal

In working with trauma the client doesn’t need to focus on the traumatic event itself

The memory is just the point to depart from and return to after treatment

This prevents retraumatisation

The deep, small steps give the client the opportunity to let go of traumatic or irrelevant material easily, without cognitive interference or psychological reversal

Working with SPP You can apply for the surrogate diagnosis: the ideomotor response or the O-ring (see reference section 13/14) for the treatment: the classical 13 TFT points or only the eye brow, side of the eye and under the eye triad

You can apply

for the surrogate diagnosis:

the ideomotor response or the O-ring (see reference section 13/14)

for the treatment:

the classical 13 TFT points or only the eye brow, side of the eye and under the eye triad

Starting Procedure Starting procedure: Identify an issue, memory, situation to work on Find a SUD score Find a negative cognition for the identity of the client in the situation (NC): In this situation, I am (worthless, not important, stupid, etc...) Find a positive cognition (PC): A cognition in which the NC is not present Rate the validity of the PC on a scale from 1 to 7 Find a bodily symptom connected to the situation or the belief Make notes

Starting procedure:

Identify an issue, memory, situation to work on

Find a SUD score

Find a negative cognition for the identity of the client in the situation (NC):

In this situation, I am (worthless, not important, stupid, etc...)

Find a positive cognition (PC): A cognition in which the NC is not present

Rate the validity of the PC on a scale from 1 to 7

Find a bodily symptom connected to the situation or the belief

Make notes

Measurement 3 instruments to measure the severity of the problem: the SUDs the value of the PC the bodily symptom Treatment departs from the bodily symptom The PC and the SUD scores are used to evaluate the process

3 instruments to measure the severity of the problem:

the SUDs

the value of the PC

the bodily symptom

Treatment departs from the bodily symptom

The PC and the SUD scores are used to evaluate the process

Bladder-2 Gall Bladder-1 Stomach-1

Diagnosis & Treatment 1 Procedure: Ask the client to concentrate on the body while thinking of the issue Find a key word or a symbol that captures the essence of the aspect that comes up Diagnose a single treatment point by surrogate diagnosis or MT Let the person tap/TaB the point, as long as she feels like it While the client is tapping, tap on yourself also There is no limit to the duration of the tapping Some points take minutes: Your body knows how long it will need to tap Let the client hold the point until she feels a shift Let the client relax and take a deep breath, wait 10 seconds

Procedure:

Ask the client to concentrate on the body while thinking of the issue

Find a key word or a symbol that captures the essence of the aspect that comes up

Diagnose a single treatment point by surrogate diagnosis or MT

Let the person tap/TaB the point, as long as she feels like it

While the client is tapping, tap on yourself also

There is no limit to the duration of the tapping

Some points take minutes: Your body knows how long it will need to tap

Let the client hold the point until she feels a shift

Let the client relax and take a deep breath, wait 10 seconds

Diagnosis & Treatment 2 Ask what comes up Every experience, thought, emotion, belief or sensation is a valid new step in the process Don't discuss new aspects, just find a name to catch its essence

Ask what comes up

Every experience, thought, emotion, belief or sensation is a valid new step in the process

Don't discuss new aspects, just find a name to catch its essence

Treatment Continued Go through steps 1 – 7 again and again, until no new aspects show up anymore When nothing new happens, go through one or more rounds with the last aspect and treatment point

Go through steps 1 – 7 again and again, until no new aspects show up anymore

When nothing new happens, go through one or more rounds with the last aspect and treatment point

If Client Reports no Change If client reports no change: Repeat the treatment with the same point and key word Ask client to observe reactions more precisely and find another key word Find another point

If client reports no change:

Repeat the treatment with the same point and key word

Ask client to observe reactions more precisely and find another key word

Find another point

Evaluation Procedure: Go back to the original situation or event Have the client estimate the SUDs and the PC again If the SUDs are higher than a 2 or 3 and the validity of the PC is under 6 or 7, go into a next series of dxtx steps Stop processing when the VC = 6 or 7 and the SUDs are down to a level the client feels comfortable with
