Intensive Trauma-Focused Therapy

This workshop will outline the potential benefits and pitfalls of intensive trauma-focused therapy, review the research, and explain, in detail, how to do it. The focus is not on a specific intervention such as EMDR or PC, and no modifications of those treatment protocols are proposed. Rather, the focus is on how to sequence the various types of interventions that are normally done over the course of trauma-informed treatment, how to manage certain types of clinical issues, and how to manage the business aspect.

  • name the two main pitfalls or challenges associated with intensive trauma-focused therapy.describe the state of the research on intensive trauma-focused therapy.
  • implement the set of procedures required to provide intensive trauma-focused therapy to clients.

The Flash Technique

Flash is a recently developed technique that involves having the client at least partially resolve a traumatic memory without consciously engaging it.

  • describe the three essential steps required for memory reconsolidation
  • describe the state of the research on Flash
  • implement Flash with a client
