Visual Schema Detachment & Restructuring (VSDR)®
Visual Schema Detachment & Restructuring (VSDR)® is a visual-based therapy for the treatment of fears and trauma-related mental health problems, including PTSD (Post-traumatic stress disorder).
The process involves taking a visual image and scoring the emotionality of the image using an 11-point Likert scale
Detaching the image, and restructuring the emotionality of the image, by associating it with another image in a different location, and with a different (often opposite) emotionality
The image is then re-scored, and if necessary, the process repeated, until the score has reduced to zero
