SPECIFIC TREATMENTS FOR SPECIFIC POPULATIONS: NARRATIVE PROCESSES IN EMOTION-FOCUSED THERAPY FOR TRAUMA

With Lynne Angus, PhD, CPsych, and Sandra C. Paivio, PhD, Cpsych

Emotion-focused therapy for trauma (EFTT) is an evidence-based, short-term therapy for clients dealing with issues stemming from child abuse trauma. Unique challenges are associated with this form of trauma, including emotion regulation difficulties and narratives devoid of affect or personal meaning.

Narrative processes in EFTT focus not only on the content but the quality of client narratives ¡X that is, how a client recounts his or her experiences. Therapists trained in this approach pay attention to the presence and type of affective experience, level of emotional arousal and engagement with trauma material, and narrative coherence. Narrative process interventions access healthy sub-dominant aspects of the client's experience and use these to promote construction of more detailed and meaningful narratives.

In this video, Drs. Lynne Angus and Sandra C. Paivio demonstrate and discuss key therapeutic interventions that encourage and direct a client through narrative and emotion-focused processes to gain acceptance and clarity on unresolved issues.

SPECIFIC TREATMENTS FOR SPECIFIC POPULATIONS: 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.

RESOLVING TRAUMA IN PSYCHOTHERAPY: A SOMATIC APPROACH

With Peter Levine, PhD

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 ¡V from car accidents, surgeries, child abuse, experiences of violence, and so on.

PSYCHOTHERAPY IN SIX SESSIONS: PSYCHOANALYTIC THERAPY OVER TIME

With Jeremy D. Safran, PhD

In Psychoanalytic Therapy Over Time, Dr. Jeremy D. Safran demonstrates the relational psychoanalytic approach. Like other forms of psychoanalysis, the relational approach emphasizes the importance of exploring unconscious processes, transference and defense, but is also distinguished by a number of key features. These include emphasizing the mutuality of the therapeutic relationship, exploring the way in which both client and therapist unconsciously contribute to playing out important relational patterns in the treatment, and valuing the therapist's feelings as important clues about both the nature of these relational patterns and the client's unconscious experience.

Over the course of the six sessions on this DVD, Dr. Safran works with a young woman with a history of serious depression, substance abuse, and a pattern of romantic involvement with abusive men. Through a process of exploring tensions and relational patterns emerging in the therapeutic relationship, Dr. Safran helps the client begin to recognize her own needs and strengths and to feel more optimistic about the future. Over the course of therapy, the client progresses from a stance of wary and resentful compliance to one of growing trust and healthy self-assertion.

PSYCHOLOGY IN THE SCHOOLS: WORKING WITH CHILDREN WHO HAVE EXPERIENCED NEGLECT OR ABUSE

With Wes Crenshaw, PhD

In Working With Children Who Have Experienced Neglect or Abuse, Dr. Wes Crenshaw demonstrates his approach to working with children who have been neglected or sexually or physically abused. Because most offenders in cases of abuse or neglect are within the child's family, this approach by necessity treats the entire family system, and the goal of therapy is to recontextualize the act of injustice, in both the offender's and the victim's minds.

In this session, Dr. Crenshaw works with three sons who were neglected and abused by their mother, who is addicted to drugs. Dr. Crenshaw listens to the painful experiences of this family and then helps the boys and their father to place the mother's behavior within the broader context of their lives.

SPECIFIC TREATMENTS FOR SPECIFIC POPULATIONS: WORKING WITH WOMEN SURVIVORS OF TRAUMA AND ABUSE

With Laura S. Brown, PhD

In Working With Women Survivors of Trauma and Abuse, Dr. Laura S. Brown shows her approach to treating female clients who have been traumatized or abused. Women are more likely than men to experience interpersonal trauma, including sexual assault and partner violence, and they also process traumatic or abusive events in a distinct way, mediated by their biology and by women's socialization. Dr. Brown discusses and demonstrates her approach of creating a safe environment for traumatized clients, teaching self-care, and helping clients to process and integrate the trauma.

In this session, Dr. Brown draws on her feminist theoretical orientation to treatment as she works with a woman from an abusive family system, focusing on empowering the client and validating the client's experiences.

TRAUMA AND SUBSTANCE ABUSE I: THERAPEUTIC APPROACHES

Clinical studies of patients in substance abuse treatment programs have shown a high correlation with a client history of trauma. The schism between the trauma and substance abuse treatment fields has meant that patients have been forced to bounce back and forth between PTSD and substance abuse treatment programs, and often are viewed as poor-prognosis. Now, however, model programs are being developed that seek to treat these problems in an integrated fashion. This series describes the special trauma and substance abuse treatment issues that this dual diagnosis presents. Four survivors of child abuse and/or combat relate how trauma and substance abuse have impacted their lives.
