137: Rapid Trauma Treatment: Live Therapy with Sherrie, Part 1 of 2.

Hi Podcast Fans,

There have been many requests for more podcasts on how we would treat trauma, using the TEAM-CBT model. I have done at least 25 workshops on the treatment of trauma in the past several years, and always do a live therapy demonstration at the end of day 1, so people can see with their own eyes how TEAM-CBT actually works. About three years ago, I did a live demonstration with a wonderful woman named Sherrie who was extremely anxious about a traumatic event involving her husband a year earlier. Sherrie kindly and courageous gave me permission to share the audio tract with you. I think you’ll really enjoy the session! I want to thank Sherrie for giving us this gift! I also want to thank my co-therapist during the session, Mike Christensen, who is Canada’s top expert in TEAM-CBT. Here’s our photo at the workshop:

While you are listening, you may want to take a look at Sherrie’s Daily Mood Log, which describes the trauma, along with her negative thoughts and feelings. We will publish the first half of the session in this podcast, and the end of the session in the next podcast. We’ll also include a live, three-year follow-up with Sherrie that we recorded recently.

Dr. Rhonda and I will make some teaching comments on the session as well.

  1. thank you for sharing your story so that we may learn. something good – is that I can tell that her patients must be treated with a high level of dignity. what makes her sad is the see her husband being taken out “like a beach whale”. Although this may be standard transportation of patients in many care settings it is still hard to see and watch. She speaks of this often in her description so i can ONLY imagine that she must treat her patients with a great deal of dignity. that is what is beautiful.

  2. Sherrie was so wonderful for sharing her story. I can relate on some level to her pain and fear. She is so courageous and wonderful. God bless her and you David!

  3. This is fantastic! Thank you so much for this series on trauma. I find that live therapy makes for the most powerful and effective podcasts.

    You’re right, it really is educational and inspirational. I’ve been feeling hopeless for so long but this gives me some hope that maybe I can find healing too.

    Huge thanks and respect to Sherri for sharing this with all of us.

  4. Good podcast.

    When you were answering questions, a lady asked you about Dr, Burns “sharing about losing a beloved pet”. While we love our pets (and, Dr. Burns adores his cat), I don’t think that is the same as losing a person.

    I think the questioner meant to ask what if the patient said something like “losing a pet is not the same thing as losing my husband”. How would Dr. Burns react to a client’s response like that?
