Three dissociative disorder cases

I've used EFT with three DID clients. One, after doing it at home for a week or so, reported "thinking more clearly" and seemed more hopeful in sessions afterwards. Then, during the Christmas season she got busy and stopped tapping, and the hopefulness decreased.

The second client I taught how to do EFT I also taught a frightened child alter, who reported at the time it made her "feel not so afraid."

The third (actually the first, now that I think of it) I taught after only reading about EFT. We used it while an alter was abreacting an abduction (before I knew she was DID) memory. The client got a smile and an amazed look on her face, stopped sobbing, and proceeded for the first time to relate every detail of the memory. (she'd tried a couple of times before this session to talk about it, but never got through it and couldn't remember details.) Interestingly, the host claims to remain amnesic of much of the memory, yet at times seems to recall or refer to parts of it. EFT stopped cold a full-blown, in-progress, sobbing, abreaction in two quick passes.

I can't recommend EFT too highly for use with DID.

Keep the victory!
