9780985016227: The Instinctual Trauma Response And Dual-Brain Dynamics: A Guide for Trauma Therapy

Linda and Lou are known as "Ma and Pa Trauma" to hundreds of therapists they have trained. Their success in the development of trauma therapy arose from their rich background in the science and art of psychotherapy. He is a psychiatrist and she an art therapist. Their earlier interest in the treatment of psychosis advanced in the 1980's to the treatment of trauma. This book describes what they have learned about trauma and about the verbal and nonverbal brains. Their brain-based understanding of traumatic memory and dissociation inspired the development of methods and procedures for rapid and comprehensive treatment of PTSD. These methods make it possible to safely depart from the conventional go-slow approaches and deal with the cause and cure of post-traumatic conditions. They offer treatment guidelines for each trauma-related DSM diagnostic entry.
