CLINICAL SYMPOSIA: POINT IN TIME THERAPEUTIC TECHNIQUE
Friday, March 11, 2011
12:00 PM - 1:20 PM

POINT IN TIME™ THERAPEUTIC TECHNIQUE TO RECALL, DECODE AND HEAL TRAUMATIC EXPERIENCES

A retrospective study of multiple cases was conducted to examine whether a therapeutic interview guide used as an intervention tool would facilitate changes in beliefs, behavior and attitudes. The intervention was intended to help clients modify fixed beliefs that perpetuate self-destructive patterns of behavior and was conceptualized as “rewriting the code” or “recoding” behavior. The technique of “a point in time™” regression was utilized to access memories of a traumatic experience that occurred at different stages.
