The Window of Tolerance

The stress of a traumatic or otherwise negative event may affect if a person can stay in their window of tolerance. A narrowed window of tolerance may cause people to perceive danger more readily and react to real and imagined threats with either a fight/flight response or a freeze response. It can also determine how EMDR therapy is tolerated. We must stay in the window of tolerance during EMDR treatment. This will be assessed before you start your intensive treatment.
