BT14 Short Course 15 – Ericksonian Trauma Work and Memory Reconsolidation – Dan Short, PhD
Ericksonian trauma work utilizes the experience of the present to redefine the past, while remaining future oriented. Memory reconsolidation occurs as memories are physically altered and re-encoded with new emotional elements. More than symptom relief, the intentional use of imagination and creative problem solving ensures greater resiliency for future challenges.
- State three psychological mechanisms by which memory reconsolidation occurs.
- List three core tasks that facilitate trauma work.
- State the key difference between therapeutic recall of memories versus potentially harmful recall work.
