RETHINKING TRAUMA TREATMENT

Attachment, Memory Reconsolidation, and Resilience

by Armstrong, Courtney

Creating safety, hope, and secure attachment to transform traumatic memories.

While therapists have been bombarded with brain science, hundreds of new models, and pressure to use evidence-based techniques, research has demonstrated that the therapeutic relationship ultimately predicts therapy outcomes. This is especially true for traumatized clients. But, what kind of therapeutic relationship? Forming a secure therapeutic alliance with traumatized clients is tricky. How do you help clients trust you after they've been abused, betrayed, or exploited? How do you instill hope and convince clients who've been devastated by loss to believe that a better life is possible?

In this accessible guide, Courtney Armstrong distills discoveries from attachment theory, brain science, and post-traumatic growth into practical strategies you can use to: 1) build trust and a secure therapeutic relationship; 2) transform traumatic memories into stories of triumph and courage; and 3) help clients cultivate resilience and a positive post-trauma identity.

Merely talking about a traumatic event is not enough because the parts of the brain where traumatic, implicit memories are stored don't understand words. Heartfelt, relational experiences catalyze brain change and buffer the impact of trauma. In this book, Armstrong demonstrates that neuroscience is validating what therapists have suspected all along: the brain changes through the heart.

Courtney Armstrong, MEd, a licensed professional counselor, lives in Hixson, Tennessee. She gives national trainings and workshops on a variety of topics for mental health professionals. She also contributes to Psychotherapy Networker and other books and journals and has made several radio and TV appearances for her expertise in grief and trauma.
