Description

Description:
Meta-analytic studies have extracted 4 common elements among effective posttraumatic stress disorder treatments: cognitive restructuring and psychoeducation, a deliberate and continually improving therapeutic relationship, relaxation and self-regulation, and exposure via narrative of traumatic experiences. The authors present a clinical treatment structure catalyzing these active ingredients into discrete therapeutic tasks that counselors can focus on to maximize treatment effectiveness. The 4 tasks represent an attempt to identify critical competencies and baseline standards for the field of trauma counseling



Objectives:

  1. Examine results of meta-analytic studies that support four common elements among effective treatments for clients with trauma-related symptoms
  2. Explore therapeutic tasks that counselors can focus on to maximize treatment effectiveness for clients diagnosed with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
