  • Thanks for your great summary of EMDR.

    You write: “Another reason doing trauma work is one of the greatest challenges we face is because the brain and body don’t have a system that tells us we are in ‘mild distress.’ We can only adjust between ‘life and death (fight, flight or freeze)’ and ‘calm (rest and digest).'”

    Are you sure we are limited to just the two, fight/flight/freeze or calm/rest/digest? How would you characterize the emotional/physiological systems (for lack of a better term) that come into play during activities such as intense cardiovascular exercise / sports, or deep cognitive work (e.g., doing advanced mathematics), or laughing a lot among an audience during a comedian’s routine?
