After clients are stable enough to begin delving into traumatic memories, many clinicians struggle with determining which method to use for trauma processing. This webinar will specifically focus on the second phase of trauma recovery, processing and integrating traumatic memories in trauma treatment. Dr. Fatter will review the nature of traumatic memory and how it differs from non-traumatic memory. The two “gold standards” evidence-based models for trauma exposure therapy will be presented: prolonged exposure therapy and cognitive processing therapy. In addition, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) and internal family systems, two research-supported models, will also be discussed. This webinar will describe how each model differs in its conceptualization of trauma and specific treatment approach in integrating traumatic memories. A case example will be used. Clinical considerations including strategies to know your client is or is not ready for trauma processing will be presented. In addition, ways to determine your client is “done” with the trauma processing stage of treatment will be reviewed.
Learning Objectives: At the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:
Report clinical issues that mean that clients are not ready for trauma processing.
Explain factors in deciding which trauma processing model to use in trauma treatment.
Explain 3 signs to know your client is “done” with the trauma processing stage of trauma treatment.
