You can observe the complete process of guiding an Iraq Vet in resolving PTSD, along with many companion issues, in just four sessions totaling 9 hours. The program is divided into 13 segments of streaming video that you can watch at your own pace, whenever you want to, as often as you want to — no time limit.

You’ll see how to help someone resolve flashbacks, nightmares, rages, grief, perfectionism, anxiety, hypervigilance, and the internal critical voices that trigger many of these — as well as work with the impact of these problems on relationships at home and at work.

Most work with complex PTSD is very slow and ineffective for two reasons. Usually there are many different issues that need to be teased apart and dealt with in very different ways, and most therapists don’t have dependable ways to resolve each of them. Although this program is primarily directed toward therapists, those suffering from PTSD can benefit from seeing how much can be accomplished in a short time.

Benefits

Most therapists never show any video of what they actually do, or at most show brief highlights, and we are left wondering what actually happens in sessions. Nowhere else do you have access to complete video of what a therapist does with a client from start to finish.

The sessions are divided into 11 useful segments, each focused primarily on one issue, making it easy for you to find or review exactly what you want to study.

The work is efficient and focused — so it’s interesting all the way through, as you watch the process unfold.

Convenience. The program is “cloud based,” so you have access to the program wherever and whenever you want, and watch as many times as you want.

You’ll see how to follow the client’s needs and leads, and how to choose and adapt interventions to assist someone with PTSD make a full recovery in a short time.

Each video segment has a written introduction and commentary to help you understand how Steve is thinking about the process and what he is doing.

And at the bottom of each video is a comments section so you can ask Steve your questions.

To give you an overview of the program, here’s Steve’s introduction to the first video segment!

Tara is a very intelligent and competent young woman who served a year in Iraq from November 2005 to November 2006 when she was 25. She was lieutenant in charge of 133 soldiers in a vehicle maintenance and repair platoon stationed 18 miles south of Baghdad in the “red zone,” under constant threat of attack 24/7. One man got up during the night to go to the bathroom, and while he was there, an incoming mortar shell took out his bed. The platoon’s job was to maintain and bring in disabled or damaged vehicles and get them running again. The constant danger resulted in generalized anxiety and hypervigilance, a useful adaptation to the situation in Iraq, but a habit that she couldn’t shake after her return. Since many attacks occurred at night when there was relative quiet, she became particularly anxious with silence.

After returning to the US, Tara was diagnosed with anxiety, mood disorder, PTSD, and minor TBI. She had nightmares and flashbacks daily, some including the smell of rotting bodies, and she would wake up from nightmares covered in sweat. These became somewhat less frequent over the years, but she still had nightmares/sweats a couple of times a month when I first saw her. She had frequent road rage when blocked in traffic, a dangerous situation in Iraq. When her vehicle was blown up by an IED, she realized that empty plastic Mountain Dew bottles had marked the location of the IED, so if she saw a pop bottle at the side of the road in the US, she panicked. She still slept with a loaded 9mm handgun and an extra clip on the nightstand near her bed, and a loaded shotgun nearby.

Tara was taking two medications for her PTSD: Buproprion HCL, an antidepressant, 150 mg. twice daily, and Clonazepam, a tranquilizer, 5 mg. “only when I have massive anxiety attacks.” Tara was also taking two other medications (unrelated to her war experiences) to support her recovery from recent surgery in which she donated a kidney to her younger sister. (Cyanocobalamin, a vitamin B 12 precursor, 1000 micrograms daily, and Gabapentin, 300 mg.)

Since Tara lived almost 150 miles away, we arranged that she would drive up with her husband BJ on Saturday morning, and we would have a session Saturday afternoon, and another session on Sunday morning. We met for two such weekends, in early April and mid-May 2013, a total of four sessions totaling almost 10 hours. Other than a brief exchange of emails, I had no other contact with Tara before our first session.

Besides the cameraman, the sessions on the first weekend were attended by Tara’s husband, BJ, and a colleague of mine, Frank Bourke, a clinical psychologist who is directing the R & R project researching rapid PTSD treatment using NLP principles. Frank had made the first contact with Tara by telephone, and put us in touch with each other. Frank attended the first weekend of my work with Tara, and he sometimes made comments or asked questions.

In the first session I begin by describing how I work, and gather information to find out what changes Tara would like to make. She first mentioned her anxiety and negativity — constantly planning for possible problems or dangers. Next she said that she had friends who had died, and third, she talked about her anger and rages, which she said was her biggest problem. When I asked if there was any other problem she wanted to change, she said, “When I think of stuff that’s bad, and that I went through, or saw, or helped with (on the edge of tears) I want to cry, but I don’t want to be crying. (Her voice breaks.) I don’t want my voice to be doing what it’s doing right now.” To summarize, she mentioned four areas: anxiety, grief, anger, and traumatic memories — which is usually the major focus in treating PTSD.

When I asked her where she wanted to start, she chose her anger. As we began, it became clear that a big factor in her exploding into rages — and sometimes destroying furniture — was the very rapid tempo of her internal critical voice, so we went to work on changing that, which also played a major part in triggering her hypervigilance.
