The Rewind is an exposure technique which allows the client to process intrusive thoughts and images without having to verbalise any information about the trauma to the therapist.

It has been used by Dr. Muss, the creator of the Rewind for Post Traumatic Stress, to effectively treat individuals and groups surviving road traffic accidents, sexual abuse, rape, assaults ,natural disasters, genocide and many other terrifying events.

The first half of the workshop is spent on the theory of how the Rewind works and its advantages compared to current coping strategies being employed for PTS. This is followed by considering the best way to assess the need for treatment and how to demonstrate whether the outcome of treatment has been successful.There will be a practical demonstration.The second half is practical: every delegate will be given the opportunity of being both therapist and client in groups of three or four at the most.These groups will be in turn be supervised by Dr.Muss and a colleague depending on delegate numbers so that every delegate leaves feeling competent. (For this reason the places are limited to 16).The workshop ends with a questions and answers session.A comprehensive manual on how and when to use the Rewind will be provided.

This workshop programme is suitable for anyone who deals with clients that have been traumatised by surviving or witnessing life threatening events and are consequently suffering from Post Traumatic Stress. The Rewind provides closure as opposed to coping mechanisms.
