    Brilliant, entertaining and provocative. Thank you. So many good and useful ideas.
    However, I didn't find the link to the Institute that was mentioned and request that you re-post it.
    Thank you

    Absolutely fantastic! Wow. Thank you so very much--this presentation will help me in my work with veterans (where I often feel like I need a whip and a chair) as well as in supporting my long-held "gut feeling" that "forcing" the narrative with rigid, rushed exposure techniques is a really unhelpful way to work with patients. Good for you Don for showing VA wonks what it really takes to do the hardest psychological work to date. I look forward to your book, and will plan on attending one of your workshops. Biiig HUGS!

    I have attended numerous workshops lead by Dr. Meichenbaum. Very helpful...very useful. Dr. M. is quite a performer..very engaging and funny. The humor and scenarios/role play really help in remembering key concepts/therapeutic tools. Can't wait to get his book. So far so good on this series. I've already signed up for more. Great way to get useful CE's. Thank you. Dr. Harvey Wolf/Arlington Heights,Ill.

    I'm not able to find a link to Dr. Meichenbaum's materials either. Where do we find this?

    Thank you!

    Excellent information, well presented by the "Bronx brothers". I will be using this in my trauma work. Looking forward to his new book.

    And,yes,where is that link?

    Laughed out loud, a memorable piece of training with clear information and funny bits. I will definitely use ideas - thank you Rich and Don

    A very enlightening presentation indeed. I particularly enjoyed the Peter Falk approach employed by Don, and the all inclusive clock metaphor that covers the landscape of experiential possibilities in the "vicious cycle." I look forward to reading his book. Thank you Don and Rich!

    Very helpful. But where are all the handouts Don referred to??? Rich mentioned they were available, but the only two things available were the one page PDF entitled Generic Case Conceptulization Model and the link to this comment board. Please, send these handouts via email!

    Hi all,

    Here's a link Don Meichenbaum was referring to:


    Scroll down to author, "Meichenbaum". The 2nd handout referenced in the presentation is, "Core Tasks of Psychotherapy with Families".

      Thank you for this link. I am really enjoying the series and learning a lot.

    Hi - I appreciate this session. It both supports things I have learned in other trauma training and offered new ifnormation. I especially look forward to implementing the clockface analogy in session - as appropriate, of course. I would love to hear/see more about narrative therapy in trauma treatment.
