The EMP (Early Memory Procedure) is a tool developed by Arnold Bruhn in the 80s to help patients to re-read and re-write the story of their life. It consists of a file that is delivered to the patient, (no obligation to fill it all), with several pages each dedicated to a particular type of memory (childhood memories, memories of family life, memories of happy or painful experiences, etc.)

    The underlying idea is that every one of us has some stories that we have built about the world and ourselves: these stories are the basis of our identity and they are somewhat subjective creations, that we created from our life experiences and that help us to make sense of our perceptions.

    For this same reason, these stories can affect what we see and can shape our present.

    Sometimes, some mechanisms learnt in the early stages of evolution, that in the past have had a useful and effective adaptive function, are repeated twenty or thirty years later, causing discomfort and inadequate and ineffective decision making, but they make sense when we compare those mechanism to ancient conflict or trauma.

    The EMP tool allows us to address the world of ancient memories in a non-straight forward and non-invasive way and to bring out the most effective mechanisms as well as the dysfunctional ones, to give the individual the opportunity to understand and make informed choices.
