This manual is a companion to the Image Transformation Therapy book, 5th ed. (Miller, 2021). The ImTT theory book explains the psychological concepts that provide the foundation for ImTT treatment. A deeper understanding of those psychological concepts allow the therapist to more easily treat what are usually very challenging psychological issues.
The second revision introduces the Image Creation Protocol (ICP). The ICP creates an image in the person's psyche to energize a person's capacity for living life.
This edition of Image Transformation Therapy offers still more breakthroughs in psychological treatment that build upon the developments presented in earlier editions. The fifth edition of the book introduces a new approach for resolving the issues of childhood emotional neglect. Emotional neglect is often the foundation of dysfunctional behaviors such as addictions. The concept of the Psychological Self is developed for understanding and targeting the impact of neglect. The feelings generated by neglect, the Sensations of Absence and the Sensations of Destruction, are released using one of the release protocols. The result is that a person no longer has to try to overcome feelings such as emptiness or being invisible. They're just not there.
For the treatment of traumatic memories and negative cognitions, the Fifth Edition presents additional breakthroughs by releasing sensations to de-energize the memories. As described in earlier editions, ImTT offers breakthroughs in the treatment of trauma, OCD, depression, anxiety. Intense feelings, such as terror, pain, guilt, and shame. These feelings, which are often a major obstacle to treatment, can be released without the person having to feel them. This prevents flooding and dissociating during treatment.

This manual is a companion to the Image Transformation Therapy book, 5th ed. (Miller, 2021). What’s New in the Advanced Scripts: The Advanced Scripts manual adds additional protocols for processing Embedded Feelings, traumatic memories, and the impact of emotional neglect. The differences between feelings and sensations is emphasized and are processed differently. Because of the number of protocols now used to completely process memories and feelings, each section would be much longer, making the manual too large. Instead, the clinician is referred to the appropriate page numbers. The eBook version of the manual has hyperlinks to quickly navigate from one script to another.
The second edition contains the additional protocols Image Creation Protocol (ICP) and the Freedom Statement Protocol (FCP). The purpose of the ICP is create images to enhance a person's effectiveness and feelings of aliveness. The purpose of the FCP is to identify adaptive but currently dysfunctional behaviors that a person has adopted in response to parents and other significant figures in the person's life.
Transcripts of actual ImTT sessions are presented in this book illustrating how ImTT is used in treating different psychological issues.
