“Amanda, a 19-year-old university student, was referred to me because of PTSD after an automobile accident in 1999. The driver in the other car crossed over the medial strip and struck her vehicle head on, killing both of his passengers and himself. Amanda was pinned under the dashboard for several hours while a rescue team struggled to cut her out of the crushed car.
I saw her a year after the accident. She was having frequent nightmares, flashbacks, panic, anxiety, and guilt feelings. She was also abusing alcohol.
After four treatment sessions [using leading-edge techniques], she was able to recall the event vividly without distress.
Later in therapy, she reported that a relative molested her from age 5 to 12. Similar treatment was applied... Follow-up several months later revealed ongoing relief on all aspects treated.”
