DeTUR (Desensitization of Triggers and Urge Reprocessing)

A New Approach to Working with Addictions and Dysfunctional Behaviours

There is no “one size fits all” solutions for these problems, therefore this protocol is flexible in order to be tailored to each individual client’s needs, goals and values. The therapeutic process is necessary in order to address client core traumatic events/issues underlying their psychological addiction. The bi-lateral stimulation in the accelerated information processing model is the catalyst and accelerator for uncovering and processing of core events/issues through to completion in order to prevent relapse.

Successful results have been reported across the spectrum of addictions and dysfunctional behaviours: chemical substances (nicotine, marijuana, alcohol, methamphetamine, cocaine, crack, heroin/methadone, etc.), eating disorders such as compulsive overeating, anorexia and bulimia, along with other behaviours such as sex, gambling, shoplifting, anger outbursts, and trichotillomania, etc.

This protocol only represents a small part of a complete treatment model.
