When working with clients with trauma, it is important to keep them in their comfort zone so they do not either shut down or become overly upset. They cannot continue the therapy process if either of these things happen. Gentle Reprocessing is designed to shield clients from their strong emotions around the traumatic incident through only looking at one emotion at a time and then turning that emotion into a moving symbol, which is released in treatment. There are also other possible shields that can be instituted should a particularly fragile client need them.
