What is DeTUR™️ protocol?

Arnold "A.J." Popky, Ph.D.

Veteran of EMDR therapy, A.J. Popky presents his signature DeTUR protocol.

As a protocol of EMDR therapy, the DeTUR™ method targets the triggers that bring up the uncomfortable feelings leading to urges.  The purpose of the protocol is to uncover the core traumas and reprocess them through to completion. DeTUR phases include client empowerment through resource accessing, installation of positive treatment goals, identification and desensitization of triggers, and techniques of relapse prevention. In achieving reprocessing, triggers no longer stimulate the need to use or act out, and the new response becomes the positive treatment goal of coping and functioning successfully in life.
