Online course: Learn how to treat phobias and trauma (PTSD) in a single session
Have you ever struggled to help someone with flashbacks, or a phobia?
It used to be thought that the only way to cure phobias or post-traumatic stress disorder was to have the sufferer get emotional again - either by behavioural exposure therapy (hoping to de-condition the response) or by 'critical incident debriefing', which has since been discredited.
But any therapist who has been faced with a traumatised or phobic patient knows how tricky treating these anxiety disorders can be.
Which is why the Rewind Technique is such a godsend
The Rewind Technique allows you to keep your client calm while having them review the problem memories (from phobic or traumatic times). The beauty of this is that the treatment is neutral for them, and can even be pleasant.
Added to this, the counsellor can perform the Rewind Technique without needing to know the content of the problem, so for particularly horrific traumas the client does not have to put themselves through the agony of describing it once again.
Over 90% of sufferers experience great relief in a single session
Our experience, and that of thousands of other practitioners using this approach, is that the vast majority (over 90%) of phobia and PTSD symptoms can be reduced by 80% or more in a single session.
That might sound like a tall claim. And we don’t make it lightly. We are offering to teach you this in live conference calls, so we’re going to have to back up our statement.
You can imagine that when you are working with someone who has struggled, say, with flashbacks, high anxiety and panic attacks for 20 years due to a rape in her teens, it is overwhelming to see their rapid recovery.
Rewind Technique efficacy is supported by new four year research
Until recently there has been little research into the rewind technique. However a new study of four years' use of the technique at the Nova Trauma Support Services (part of the Barnardo’s charity) has shown remarkable results. The Nova team provide therapeutic support to individuals and families who have been psychologically traumatised, primarily as a result of their experiences in Northern Ireland.
The team worked with forty seven people, 57% of whom were treated with only the Rewind Technique. Twenty six would have met the criteria for PTSD. The results show that after treatment none of the forty seven people treated met the criteria for PTSD. There was also a significant reduction of all sub symptoms associated with PTSD, five categories had zero reports after treatment.
Martin Murphy, lead clinician in the study, said ‘….the case notes repeatedly identified not only relief from symptoms but also the emergence of qualitative positive changes in the individual’s daily lives.’ He suggests that it is effective in children as young as 8 and adults at least to the age of seventy; and that the rewind is effective for both single and multiply traumatized individuals.
