 When an upsetting experience is not properly processed by the brain, post-traumatic stress symptoms ensue. Memory reconsolidation – the neuroscientific term for trauma healing – occurs when the brain experiences a certain sequence of events, that can be intentionally guided by the therapist. The leading research-supported trauma healing methods are reviewed, with special attention to key mechanisms of effect, as well as effectiveness, efficiency, and acceptability to clients. EMDR is currently the leading trauma treatment, and preliminary comparisons indicate that PC may be even more efficient. Intensive trauma-focused therapy affords rapid results as well as reduced risks of destabilization or disruption of treatment, while roughly halving total treatment hours.

 

 Ricky Greenwald, PsyD, is the founder and executive director of the Trauma Institute & Child Trauma Institute, affiliate professor at the SUNY University at Buffalo School of Social Work, and a fellow of the American Psychological Association. He was previously on the faculty at Mount Sinai School of Medicine. Dr. Greenwald is the author of numerous professional articles as well as several books, including EMDR in Child & Adolescent Psychotherapy (1999), Trauma and Juvenile Delinquency (editor; 2002), Child Trauma Handbook (2005), EMDR Within a Phase Model of Trauma-Informed Treatment (2007), Treating Problem Behaviors (2009), and Progressive Counting (2013). His work has been translated into over a dozen languages.

Dr. Greenwald is an EMDR pioneer, the developer of Progressive Counting, and a leading developer of intensive trauma-focused therapy, each of which are featured in this program.
