  • 0 NP0024 The Latest Advances in Trauma Treatment: New Perspectives on PTSD в†’ Trauma in Context with Kenneth V. Hardy 09.13.2012 14:34
    Dr. Hardy, what you have said today is most helpful. As a 2010 graduate with a specialization in trauma, this was a wonderful reminder of all that I learned: slow down, nurture a trusting relationship, stay slow and steady, titrate very carefully as the relationship evolves, name what is happening, gently challenge,..... And I love the "what has happened to you" question. Genius. And respectful. A way to avoid implying that someone is broken. And I love the way you identify as someone who also has experiences that your client might be feeling. A beautiful way to create a relationship. I learned in school to not self disclose but more and more, I think that some careful self-disclosure helps to bridge some very wide gaps. Thank you for your wisdom.
