Redefining trauma and its hidden connections: Identifying and reprocessing the experiential contributors to a wide variety of disorders

Description

The evolution of psychotherapy over the past decades has underscored the continued search for more effective models to comprehensively treat the complexity of the human condition. Parallel to the recognition of the importance of neural integration as an underlying mechanism of change, described in earlier chapters, is the recognition of the utility of integrated clinical practice. The following chapters address a wide range of therapeutic approaches utilized in the treatment of trauma. As we will see, each orientation is guided by a theory of pathology, and therapeutic change is achieved by focusing on various aspects of the symptom picture (see also Shapiro, 2002; Solomon et al., 2001). This chapter offers a model of psychotherapy practice that may be able to bridge the various orientations and provide a common framework for understanding the clinical change processes.
