Super Resourcing: An Integrative Protocol for Healing Attachment Wounds

Super Resourcing (SR) is an innovative and effective protocol for healing attachment wounds. It offers a new way of thinking about and healing attachment trauma that is both creative and grounded in the current research on the neurobiology trauma and attachment repair.

Accelerated Information Processing (AIP)is a key factor in the understanding the efficacy of EMDR. All three negative neural networks (sensation, emotion and cognition) are activated with bilateral stimulation; the consequence is a more complete and time-efficient resolution. Super Resourcing is based on my discovery that the AIP model is just as effective in activating and neurologically installing a positive target along with a positive matrix of sensations, emotions and cognitions.

While based on the theoretical underpinings of EMDR, SR differs in that it focuses on the person who experienced a trauma rather than the trauma itself. The neurological integration of positive resources facilitates an enhanced present-time experience of self. It maximizes the development of new and more positive neural networks. Drawing upon Attachment and Ego State theories, wounded parts are invited into and healed within the neurologically potentiated resourced field. Resolving the attachment wounds interwoven in a trauma unfixes it in the client’s psyche and it processes more easily; less resistance, dissociation and looping occurs. When attachment wounds are addressed and resolved, there is a corresponding decrease in the disturbance associated with the trauma. A systematic experience of well-being allows dissociation and fragmentation to heal and an experience of present-time wholeness becomes possible. SR challenges the assumption that reprocessing traumatic memories is necessary for their resolution. SR frequently takes the trauma out of trauma processing. Consequently, it is applicable to a wider range of clients for whom EMDR may not have been indicated.
