The Counting Method is a recently developed psychotherapy treatment for resolving trauma memories. It may perform as well as the most efficient leading methods while being simple to implement and easy to teach, thus potentially enhancing dissemination of effective trauma treatment. Progressive Counting represents a substantial modification of the Counting Method, for enhanced efficiency and client tolerance. Three cases are presented, illustrating Progressive Counting's potential utility in treating trauma for a range of presenting problems.
