What is the background of Visual Kinesthetic Dissociation?
The visual-kinesthetic dissociation (V/KD) protocol is an intervention originally designed in the early 1980s for use with phobias. The V/KD procedure first appeared in Bandler’s Using Your Brain for a Change (1985). An expanded version of the procedure, and its first application to post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), appeared in Andreas' Heart of the Mind (Andreas and Andreas, 1989). Dilts and Delozier (2000) provide a slightly different version of the protocol in their Encyclopedia of Systemic Neuro-Linguistic Programming and NLP New Coding.
