The Rewind Technique is different from other imaginal exposure therapies because no details are needed to be disclosed to the therapist, hence the treatment is known as “closure without disclosure”.
IARTT trained (The International Association for Rewind Trauma Therapy)
This is a powerful visual technique which teaches the brain to process traumatic incidents differently without any need to talk about the trauma with the success rate being over 95% and usually requires just 2-3 sessions per incident (sometimes just one!)
Rewind was first introduced into the literature of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder by Dr David Muss back in 1991 and has become internationally recognised as indispensable to treat PTSD/Trauma and Fear.
The benefits of non-disclosure include:
- Minimising the risk of the client being re-traumatized.
- There is no fear of disclosing sensitive information (although, if you found it helpful to talk the event, that is absolutely fine)
The Rewind offers a way of stopping the involuntary recall by filing the traumatic event so it comes under control. Voluntary recall remains.
For multiple event traumas, each traumatic event can be dealt with separately over separate sessions.
Clients often ask me for examples of traumatic events I work with. My answer is that what one person regards as a trauma may not be the same as another. A traumatic incident is unique to the individual, and it could be an event that you were involved in, you may have been a bystander or it could be something that has been imagined, all of which can bring about the same traumatic symptoms.
