RET In Emergencies
While an authoritative approach is a necessary factor in
scene control, rapport is a key element in communication.
Educating workers in rapport and pain diversion techniques
will assist in the reduction of retraumatization for the
worker and the patient.
During stress no one's reaction or coping skills are the
same. However, trauma storage in the brain is similar. Desensitizing
eye movement works on specific parts of the brain. By rapidly
moving the eyes in specific designated directions, the neuropathways
of the brain are opened. Psychologically and physiologically,
trauma storage( known as an emotional attachment to trauma)
is then released. The IRT process allows for a pattern
interrupt to the brain wave activity and the trauma storage
This procedure has also proven invaluable in pain control
when no meds are available. Professional application for
these techniques include but are not limited to: mental
health professionals, doctors, nurses, massage or physical
therapists, police and sheriff, correctional facility staff,
teachers, military staff, hospital and emergency personnel
at all levels. The IRT course is intended to assist all
of the above named professionals but is focused on emergency
workers in dealing with individuals experiencing trauma.
Compassion Fatigue Prevention
Compassion Fatigue is happening every day to a host of
trauma workers. Labels for this phenomenon range from Delayed
Stress Syndrome, Vicarious Traumatization, Post Traumatic
Stress Disorder and burn out. While Compassion Fatigue has
been an ongoing historical dilemma, insight to relief and
restoration for the emergency worker is relatively new.
Immediate Release Technique (IRT)
Johnson, founder of the Rapid Eye Institute, developed
the Immediate Release Technique (IRT) curriculum based
on over 25 years of behavioral research and applied
science. IRT provides trauma victims with a safe,
drug free technique for the rapid release of panic,
negative emotions and behaviors while assisting with
What Is RET?
And Why Does It Work So Well?
Rapid Eye Technology (RET) is swiftly making
its way into the main stream with its value being
proven both clinically and in the field.
RET, physiologically and psychologically, opens up
the neuropathways where the energetic memories of
our personal and inherited traumatic experiences are
trapped. For instance, being trapped in the birth
canal, trapped in a car accident, or trapped in a
relationship, are all on the same neuropathway.
Neurons in the brain stem switch on the same way
they do in REM sleep, causing communication at the
cellular level throughout the body. Energy confined
at the cellular level by emotional or physical trauma
is thus accessed allowing energy discharge through
a fast eye blinking process. Clients release issues
and emotions at a comfortable rate without reliving
