This workshop presents a structured protocol for resolving repressed, suppressed or otherwise dated affect using ideomotor questioning. Essential to this model is a progressive ratification series that addresses affect, cognition and behavior. A questioning tree illustrates a Socratic means of affect inquiry. This non-invasive, brief procedure is a useful adjunct to other treatment modalities and instrumental in clarifying the focus of treatment.
