EMOTION-FOCUSED THERAPY FOR TRAUMA

With Sandra C. Paivio, PhD, Cpsych

Emotion-focused therapy for trauma (EFTT) is an evidence-based, short-term, individual therapy for adult clients dealing with issues stemming from child abuse trauma.

In this program, Dr. Sandra C. Paivio is featured in a clinical demonstration of EFTT, and further outlines its strategies for reprocessing trauma feelings and memories and working directly with emotional processes to bring about client change. EFTT posits that the therapeutic relationship and emotional processing of trauma memories are mechanisms of change. By emphasizing access to previously inhibited adaptive feelings and meanings, the clinician and client can use the adaptive information associated with these emotions to modify maladaptive meanings associated with fear, avoidance, and shame.

In Emotion-Focused Therapy for Trauma, Dr. Paivio works with a young woman who has a history of trauma and current symptoms of posttraumatic stress disorder. Dr. Paivio first works to establish an alliance with the client to build safety and collaborate on the tasks and goals for therapy, then helps the client to allow the painful feelings and memories associated with traumatic events. Dr. Paivio helps her to express her anger at violation and sadness at loss, accessing self-soothing resources and compassion for self in the process.

PTSD: LIVING IN A STRESSFUL WORLD - UNDERSTANDING AND OVERCOMING POST-TRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER

By Jef Gazley, M.S.,LMFT

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition that is triggered by a terrifying event. Symptoms may include flashbacks, nightmares and severe anxiety, as well as uncontrollable thoughts about the event. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder is very common in today's society. When a trauma occurs a person often has a delayed reaction that can cripple them for years unless treated. This educational DVD discusses the causes, symptoms, and treatment of this disorder, and was also used as research for the movie "The Manchurian Candidate."

This educational video on Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder treatment addresses the enormous problem of trauma and trauma resolution. Trauma has always been with us, but has been on the rise in recent years. The tragedy of the Columbine shootings, and the World Trade Center Twin Towers in New York on 9/11, are only two examples in the United States. As terrorism continues to grow it becomes imperative to truly understand the intricacies of this mental health disorder.

New treatment modalities have been discovered in the past 20 years that help to relieve PTSD quickly and with much less painful emotion than more conventional therapies. This educational DVD presents all of these new treatments.

RESOLVING TRAUMA IN PSYCHOTHERAPY: A SOMATIC APPROACH

With Peter Levine, PhD

Watch a true master, Dr. Peter A. Levine, demonstrate a course of body-oriented trauma therapy in this extremely compelling and in-depth video with an Iraq Veteran diagnosed with severe PTSD.

Working with Ray's presenting symptoms over the course of five sessions, Levine introduces a number of essential trauma resolution techniques that markedly improve Ray's Tourette-like convulsions, as well as his overall pain and emotional outlook. Levine developed Somatic Experiencing® based on the premise that trauma overwhelms the nervous system and that it needs to be addressed somatically before emotional processing is possible. Thorough commentary by Levine, as well as an extensive interview, helps to elucidate the subtleties of his methods. You will walk away from this video with a sound understanding of this approach to trauma work. This method can be integrated with and add richness to a number of therapeutic modalities and can be used to treat all manner of trauma - from car accidents, surgeries, child abuse, experiences of violence, and so on.

By watching this program, you will:
  • Learn the nine building blocks of the Somatic Experiencing® approach
  • Understand the physiological orientation that underpins this method of trauma resolution
  • Have the tools to integrate basic somatic methods into your clinical work with trauma clients

    EMDR FOR TRAUMA - EYE MOVEMENT DESENSITIZATION AND REPROCESSING

    With Francine Shapiro, PhD

She uses EMDR to help the client process the images, emotions, feelings, and thoughts associated with his job-related trauma.
