What is ironic is that I have csa issues, and when I was working at Menninger's, I was working on the Trauma Recovery Unit with almost exclusively women with csa histories and dissociative identity disorders or at least dissociative issues. I never once was triggered by anyone, even people I saw for therapy. I had my stuff so nicely locked away that even later when working with sex offenders, I wasn't bothered. That still holds true. Very strange as I was doing evaluations on most of the sex offenders coming through the court system. Never triggered by anything. My stuff started to emerge when I all of a sudden developed all sorts of physical problems around 2.5 years ago. Then all my stuff started coming back into consciousness. So, now I deal with it, and the sex offenders still were not bothering me. My T thought this was unusual. That is there stuff though, and not mine and they did nothing to me. So.

Re my therapeurtic approach when I was doing therapy, I was not a strict Freudian, no way. My approach was more of an object relations (ala drive theory) and ego psychology approach--more wholistic and building on strengths as well as identifying problems and how the relate to the present, etc. My husband is an Adlerian, and so I know a lot about Adlerian approach too.

I have to wonder about your intern therapist. I doubt you triggered her. She should have been put on LOA. If my stuff had come up then, I would have taken a LOA. Her supervisor is just as responsible for letting her continue. I think my treatment at Menningers is what helped me to maintain my boundaries and contain my stuff so that it did not interfere with my work and still doesn't. But I still would rather not try to do therapy right now. I don't need to be "testing" myself.

Take care.
