At our next Video Night we’ll be watching Dr. Sandra Pavio’s video Narrative Processes in Emotion-Focused Therapy for Trauma Here’s the description from APA:
“Emotion-focused therapy for trauma (EFTT) is an evidence-based, short-term therapy for clients dealing with issues stemming from child abuse trauma. Unique challenges are associated with this form of trauma, including emotion regulation difficulties and narratives devoid of affect or personal meaning.
Narrative processes in EFTT focus not only on the content but the quality of client narratives — that is, how a client recounts his or her experiences. Therapists trained in this approach pay attention to the presence and type of affective experience, level of emotional arousal and engagement with trauma material, and narrative coherence. Narrative process interventions access healthy sub-dominant aspects of the client’s experience and use these to promote construction of more detailed and meaningful narratives.
In this video, Drs. Lynne Angus and Sandra C. Paivio demonstrate and discuss key therapeutic interventions that encourage and direct a client through narrative and emotion-focused processes to gain acceptance and clarity on unresolved issues.“
