Picking up on the stage of Reorganization from May 18

Well, a truly more informed book update is that it now 2-3 weeks from completion.  I am awaiting the actual date and will post it right away.  It will be available as an e-book for $3.99, paperback 17.99 and hardcover $30.95.  It will be available at Westbow Press, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, a link will be on this website and I am not sure where else they may be making it available.

Picking up from where I left off with the Reorganization stage (described in detail in the book) on May 18 ;

“The following three treatment approaches have been shown to be effective in treating SV.

EMDR (Eye Movement Reprocessing and Desensitization)

“In the broadest sense, EMDR is intended to alleviate human suffering and assist individuals and human society to fulfill their potential for development while minimizing risks of harm in its application. For the client, the aim of EMDR treatment is to achieve the most profound and comprehensive treatment effects in the shortest period of time, while maintaining client stability within a balanced family and social system.” The EMDR International Association’s website is now saying that after many controlled studies, most people are helped with this approach.

PE (Prolonged Exposure Therapy)

PE “is a theoretically based and highly efficacious treatment for chronic Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and related depression, anxiety, and anger . . . it is empirically validated . . . a flexible therapy that can be modified to fit the needs of the individual clients . . . . Prolonged exposure produces clinically significant improvement in about 80% of patients with chronic PTSD.”50 For more information visit www.ptsd.va.gov.

CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy)

CBT “is a psychotherapeutic approach, a talking therapy aimed at solving problems concerning dysfunctional emotions, behaviors and cognitions through goal-oriented, systematic procedure. The title is used in diverse ways to designate behavior therapy, cognitive therapy, and to refer to therapy based upon a combination of basic behavioral and cognitive research.”51
