We’ll be using Zoom, so please take a bit of time to familiarise yourself with this online platform. This is the link we will be using, and the Zoom browser page will tell you what to do.
Please if at all possible make sure you join using quality headphones, with attached microphone.I use Logitech H340, costing £27.10 and well worth the investment. It is in my experience much better not to rely on the mic and speakers in your laptop, as this can generate extraneous noise during calls that involve more than two people.
Make sure to check microphone input and headphone output through the Mic icon on the bottom left of the Zoom screen. Make sure that zoom has access to both mic and camera.
Especially if you’re using Apple products, which can be more difficult to manage on a group call than Windows. If you’re using Apple or iPhone, you will probably need to enter your password to enable sound.
I’ll be recording this, so anyone who can’t make the discussion in person will be able to tune in afterwards to catch up. Taking part will be understood as agreement to share this recording, password-protected, with colleagues who register interest.
Ensure that your laptop/PC camera is positioned as high as necessary (e.g. on books) to allow you to look into the camera more or less at eye level. Otherwise we get to look up your nostrils.
Make sure you are in a space where you won’t be disturbed, with closed doors, and no lights or windows behind you. Where there are the latter, position the laptop between yourself and the source of the light.
Ideally please download first onto your smartphone the app BSDR Player. Take a look also at a YouTube video here which can be used to generate both tones and EMs.
Please before the call read the documents on my websitesummarising previous such discussions about EMDR online. This will oil the wheels nicely so we can move things forward.
Would anyone like to volunteer to be a client for the two full live demos, one on each of the mornings.
