  • Trauma-induced dissociative amnesia in World War I combat soldiers. II. Treatment dimensions.
    Australian & New Zealand Journal of Psychiatry, 1999
    Co-Authors: Paul K. Brown, Onno Van Der Hart, Mariétte Graafland

    Abstract:

    Objective: This is the second part of a study of posttraumatic amnesia in World War I (WW I) soldiers. It moves beyond diagnostic validation of posttraumatic amnesia (PTA), to examine treatment findings, and relates these to contemporary treatment of dissociative amnesia, including treatment of victims of civilian trauma (e.g. childhood sexual abuse).Method: Key WW I studies are surveyed which focus on the treatment of PTA and traumatic memories. The dissociation-integration and repression-Abreaction models are contrasted.Results: Descriptive evidence is cited in support of preferring Myers’ and McDougalls’ dissociation-integration treatment approach over Brown’s repression-Abreaction model.Conclusion: Therapeutic findings in this paper complement diagnostic data from the first report. Although effective treatment includes elements of both the dissociative-integrative and abreactive treatment approaches, cognitive integration of dissociated traumatic memories and personality functions is primary, while em…

  • Using context to treat traumatized children.
    The Psychoanalytic study of the child, 2009
    Co-Authors: Lenore C. Terr

    Abstract:

    When treating childhood psychic trauma, context means “putting a perspective to the terrifying experience”–“seeing it in a new light”, one might say, or understanding its magnitude and meaning. Of three essential mechanisms behind a young person’s psychological recovery from a stress disorder–Abreaction, context, and correction-context is the most reflective, cognitive, and conscious of these processes; while Abreaction is primarily emotive, and correction is primarily behavioral (involving real or fantasied action). Because context, newly introduced by this author to the psychiatric literature (Terr, 2003), is the most recent and the least well understood of the three mechanisms, it will be the sole focus here.
