The EI Scale For Relationship Work

Silvia Hartmann writes: I needed something that was more open ended than the SUDs scale and also, I didnโ€™t want to discriminate and call emotions โ€œdisturbancesโ€ nor did there seem any point to go on about how, of course and indeed, emotions are most subjective indeed. Introducing the EI Scale - measuring emotional intensity on a range of subjects.

As weโ€™ve found out by now, both of these notions are disrespectful to the energetic system that drives our neurologies and thereby, our minds and our bodies profoundly and on an ongoing basis.

The EI scale (emotional intensity scale) is open ended and allows the client or yourself to give your/their own number right up to infinity for the profoundest of emotions.

It is useful because I have found when you have thought that you have reached your most profound emotional responses, thereโ€™s another level right behind and with the open ended EI scale you canโ€™t run out or bunch up your best results at the top end.

It further allows for real quantum leap distinctions in the clientโ€™s experience to become visible to you on a piece of paper.

You simply rate on the intensity of the emotion so that we donโ€™t need to go into โ€œgood or badโ€ territory which in and of itself is never really helpful.

With conflicting emotions, you can draw simple bar charts for all emotions present and conceptualise them that way, as well as track how they change after treatment.

Simple EI Chart for a single complex problem relationship:

---------------------------------- desperation (5000)

---------------- anger (2000)

------------------------------------------------------------------------------- fear (9500)

------------------------------------------ gratitude (6000)

---------------------------------------------------------------- hatred (8500)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------โ†’ love (100,000+)


After first set of treatments (EFT, TFT, TAB & TAT combination):

Desperation (0)

------ anger (250)

------------------------------- fear (4000)

Gratitude (0)

Hatred (0)

-------------------------------------------- love (5000)


This provides valuable feedback, outside data, convincers for you and the client, as well as being interesting, and a respectful process of exploration where no-one is judging no-one but just taking note of

a) what there is and

b) how it changes with the interventions.

c) what the general landscape of the emotions in the relationship to each other looks, feels and acts like.
