Online & In-Person EMDR Tools – BilateralBase
The Bilateral Base BLS tools can be used just as effectively in your therapy room as online.
This feature is currently in Beta so it will continue evolving as we add more capabilities to it
This is the simplest way of
Select ‘In-Person Session’ on the Practice Manager screen
If you intend to use auditory BLS with your client then connect headphones and check that these are working
Select Full Screen mode in the bottom right of your screen
Set up the BLS tools as needed for your client
You are now ready to use the in-person BLS tools with your client
You can start/stop BLS with your mouse (or other pointing device)
You can also start/stop BLS using the spacebar on your keyboard
You can alter the speed using your mouse or the UP/DOWN arrows on your keyboard
(Tip – using an external keyboard means you can control the BLS from a distance)
If you have an additional screen for your computer/device, you can set up your therapy room so that you can control the BLS from a distance
First up your second screen so it mirrors the content on your first screen
Instructions for Mac
Instructions for Windows
You are now ready to use the in-person BLS tools with your client with them looking at your second screen
(Watch a demo of this setup below)
Please note that as this feature is still in beta, the BLS controls will appear on your clients screen as well as yours. We will soon make it so that your client only sees the light bar and not the BLS controls.
You can also choose to use a second device to remotely control the display device. This allows you to conveniently control the device from your chair without having to lean over you client to control the BLS
Choose whether you want the device you are using to be the display device or the control device.
Then log into your account with your second device and select it as your display or control device (whichever option you didn’t select before).
Once you have done this you will be able to control the display device, making things comfortable and easy for you and really professional for your clients
